An In-FLUX of visitors attended LSAD, Limerick School of Art and Design for one of Ireland’s largest and most vibrant Graduate Shows.
Pictured at the event were, Barry Cowen TD, his daughter, Gemma Cowen, a painting graduate, Mike Fitzpatrick Dean, Limerick School of Art & Design and Director Cultural Engagement and Chief Executive of the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland, Karen Hennessy who officially opened the Flux Exhibition.
More than 200 Fine Art and Design students’ work went on display from June 2 to June 10, 2018 at the LSAD Graduate Show - FLUX.
LSAD has been central to Art, Craft and Design in the Limerick and Midwest region since 1852.
The concept, branding and overall design of the 2018 LSAD Graduate Show - FLUX – is student led, and begins this Saturday June 2 and runs until June 10, 2018.
FLUX encapsulates the movement and change from student to graduate. “The “X” in “FLUX” represents the students and how they have made their mark in their time at college,” explains designers Cathy Hogan and Will Harte as they outline the thinking behind the concept.
FLUX describes the dynamic movement in the Limerick city region as it overcomes significant issues to become a fulcrum of rejuvenation, vibrant culture, strong industry growth and a centre of design.
LSAD is also in a state of FLUX as it develops its enterprise potential and engagement with stakeholders across industry, public bodies, third level institutions and other partners overseeing a shift towards design, creativity and connectivity that goes far beyond the walls of its main campus on Clare Street.
