North and South Carolina home and the innovative work being created in these two states. The theme for this year’s event is “Designing Change.” We have a powerful and wonderful design community – it’s time we show the rest of the world what we’re doing to mold our future.
The purpose of DXR ’09 is to present great design to the public and to give designers, both professionals and students, a forum to display and discuss their work. A unique showcase of applied arts coming together as a whole, Design Expo Raleigh promotes broader awareness of many different design disciplines and creates an opportunity for local designers to network with each other, students, and the public.
Among the diverse applied arts to be represented at DXR ’09 are Animation, Architecture, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, and Textile/Fashion Design. Our main Exhibition ’09 will showcase exhibits from each discipline. In addition, there will be lectures featuring both the educational and professional aspects of each discipline, and tours of specific projects giving the public and other designers a unique perspective on a designer’s creation.
It is the goal of DXR’09 to stimulate dialogue between students of all ages, professionals, and the general public about design and its role in our lives. Come be a part of it! We are actively looking for volunteers and sponsors who want to show that great design matters to them.
This year’s exhibit will be traveling! We will start in Raleigh on May 1st-9th, 2009 at Flanders Art Gallery and then head to Charlotte and the Mint Museum of Craft and Design from Aug. 20th-22nd, 2009.
