Savannah College of Art and Design created a reverse career fair called Out to Launch (O2L) about seven years ago to empower students to amplify their bodies of work in their own voice. It’s a reversal in that the employers come to the students, instead of the students going to the employers at their headquarters or a conference hall.

In three months time, the students made sculptures composed entirely of recycled waste provided by the bank, including plastic, paper, and electronics.

Savannah College of Art and Design student Tiffany Cash (M.F.A., Fibers) opened her Thesis show Intertwined, (running March 28-April 12) and transformed the Fresh Exhibitions gallery into an immersive world of bright organic shapes. Using fabric, cotton, embroidery floss, and airbrushing to create the installation, Cash was inspired by the colors and textures of macro photographs of mold, bacteria, and coral.
