Faculty Work Part of ‘Day of the Dead’ MAK Exhibition

Woodbury University School of Architecture faculty Annie Chu and Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter, along with Wahlroos-Ritter's partner Roland, are included in an exhibition hosted by the MAK Center for Art and Architecture.  The MAK Center invited a select group of architects, designers and artists to produce a light fixture of any kind and donate it to its First Day of the Dead Auction. Images can be found by clicking HERE. The exhibition also features work from Woodbury adjunct faculty Olivia Booth and Nate Page.
