HPU Hosts Design, Art And Technology Symposium

03.9.2009

HIGH POINT, N.C., March 6, 2009 – High Point University “wowed” guests with a giant cardboard creation named “Gulliver,” a 55-foot piece created by internationally acclaimed artist James Grashow and a team of HPU students. The enormous artwork was part of the Fifth Annual Design, Art and Technology Symposium, held March 5-6 on the HPU campus.

The annual event, hosted by various area institutions, focused this year on the underlying concept that design matters – and that every facet of our lives is touched by design, be it fine arts, Web design or the design of functional objects.

This year’s symposium also featured Alexander Julian, design icon, and Dr. Idit Harel Caperton, technology researcher and educator, as well as panel discussions and a Regional Student Art Exhibit.

Sponsors for the symposium included the High Point University Cultural Programs Committee, the Knabusch-Shoemaker International School of Home Furnishings and Design, UNC-G DATS 2008 and the Center for Design Innovation.
