NEW YORK – Fou Gallery is pleased to host a field trip with designers from Wix Design Playground on August 9th. Wix Design Playground is the renowned cloud-based web development platform Wix’s new initiative. 40 designers are recruited from all over the world to attend a 3-month free web design program in NYC. Students can attend exciting workshops by award-winning designers, complete three individual projects, and bridge the gap between design school and the professional world.
During the whole day’s field trip, students from Wix Design Playground walked through Fou Gallery’s exhibitionOrogenies with Fou Gallery founder Echo He and participated in a marble printing workshop with artist Jisook Kim. In the workshop, Jisook Kim introduced her artistic concept and demonstrate basic techniques of making marble prints, which forms basic elements in her work. Latter in Fou Gallery’s garden, the students had a special dining and drinking experience with Junzi Kitchen and Luv Tea, and enjoyed jazz performance by vocal musician Matthew Walters-Bowens.
This is our second time collaborating with Wix and we hope this event could provide inspiration for students in Wix Design Playground and beyond.
