Wayne State Insiders: Entrepreneurship in Art and Design

Return to Event

You might know that Wayne State is a hub for entrepreneurship, but did you know that it is a commitment that extends into the art world? Join the Wayne State Insiders to see how students in the industrial, interior and fashion design programs of the James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History connect with our community at the next Wayne State Insiders.

Matthew Seeger, dean of the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts, will welcome us, and industrial design faculty members Siobhan Gregory and Brian Kritzman will speak about the evolution of their program. Entrepreneurial students who participated in the Noel Night Batch Production project will discuss how that experience has informed their aspirations. Afterward, we will tour the department’s galleries and learn about the latest installations with director Tom Pyrzewski.

 The Wayne State Insiders includes alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty and staff who serve as informal ambassadors for Wayne State and our Midtown community. We welcome anyone excited about the positive impact of WSU and Detroit’s urban renewal. The more we learn, the more we can share and the greater our collective impact can be.
