As part of the Seaport’s 2016 culture programming, the Howard Hughes Corp., in association with the Downtown Alliance, has partnered with NYC Design Week to host the Downtown Design Festival.

As social media influences our culture, sharing on these platforms becomes an important part of the creative act for artists. The documentation of these various stages of work permits an intimate view of moments that were traditionally solitary. The exhibition #wip showcases current students from the artist collective Urban Studio within the Fine Arts Department @FIT as well as a select group of program alumna.
