On my birthday (and after a two-hour jaunt in the rain in Central Park) I headed over to Project Emerge's Gallery showcase. I gave a motivational workshop on sustainable style and design earlier in the year. Page Neal headed up the junior program for Project Emerge. Great to say that she is branching off and doing a sustainable jewelry line. Pictures aren't all that clear, but maybe it was for the I said...two hours in the rain....and man, was it refreshing.

ABOUT PROJECT EMERGE: The FIT Project Emerge High School Art and Design Partnership Program (HSPP) identifies high-potential New York City students with art, apparel or design talents and prepares them for post-secondary majors and industry careers where, due to limited ethnic and socioeconomic diversity, they have been historically under-represented. Through program activities that emphasize intensive skills enrichment, industry exposure and student development, HSSP helps students to be prepared, competitive, and confident as they navigate their course of study and plan for careers in the art and/or apparel-related industries. Through our efforts, FIT's High School Partnership Program strives to create a more diverse, interesting, and just art and design community.
