FSH 201: Reclaimed, Refurbished, Repurposed

At the end of last semester, students in Judith Zimrin’s FSH 201 – Introduction to the Reclaimed Object, found discarded chairs and gave them a second life. They reclaimed, refurbished, and repurposed the chairs, turning them into creative works of art. The chairs are now on display at the Academy of Art University Gallery at The Cannery until February 29th. Be sure to stop by and check them out – just don’t sit down!
