This annual exhibition presents works related to the Benjamin Menschel Fellowships granted to selected Cooper Union students to travel and further work on projects related to art, architecture, design, and engineering. This year's projects include:
Nicole Lindner and Jesus Morales, of the School of Art, along with Sophie Schneider, a mechanical engineering student of the Albert Nerken School of Engineering, travelled to a small historic town in Mexico, Real de Catorce, where a Canadian silver mining company is planning to “aggressively develop its assets."
Jackson McGrath, of the School of Art, travelled to Haverstraw, NY, a small town on the Hudson that once supplied most of the bricks that built NYC.
Sarah Phillips and Yonatan Katzelnik, of the School of Art, traveled to Catalonia to research the development and use of Guifi.net, an open telecommunications community network, during the recent Catalan bid for independence.
Tandis Shoushtary and Anna Burholt, of the School of Art, travelled to Toronto to interview queer/LGBT Iranian women, mostly asylum seekers, for a short animated documentary.
Gabriela Godlewski, studying civil engineering at the Albert Nerken School of Engineering, traveled to Houston to study that city’s post-hurricane efforts through soil sampling, interviewing residents, and working with several of the city’s response agencies.
Opening Reception is Tuesday, January 29 at 6PM.
On view Tuesdays through Saturdays, 11AM - 7PM
