Stories, Myths, Tales at Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC

Want to see a modern day Medusa and read her story? 
 How about the Iroquois Thunder God Heno?
 Or the Korean fairy tale The Fox Sister?
Graduating students of FIT's Visual Presentation and Exhibit Design program bring these, and many other cultural myths and tales from around the world, to life in the form of huge storybooks and mannequins.
The students incorporate wonderful details into their presentations.  On the day that I visited the exhibition, The Fox Sister's robust and hairy paw foot, peeking through her beautiful topcoat, caused a teenager to initially shriek.  (Later, she could not stop talking about her "amazing"experience!)
Even the lace on La Befana's handmade veil is spectacular!

Cultural Folklore and Legends: On exhibit until April 21 at the Fred P. Pomerantz Art & Design Center Lobby, 227 West 27th Street. 

**These are the graduating students who created this enjoyable and insightful exhibition:
Chelsea Blackman, Giuliana Buono, Alice Cole, Christine Colligan, Keri Collins, Ria Cresswell, Alexandra D'Alleva, Lauren Fremgen, Merrill Hersam, Aubrie Kish, Yoo Jung Lee, Savannah Lyons, Anastasiya Malakhowskaya, Katia Michalopoulos, Niambi Moore, Patrick O'Conner, Jackline Raggi, Christy Rappold, Corinne Spano, Kendal Steensen, Abigail Trautwig, Julia Weinzimer, Sarah White
