GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The vast, open space of the gallery gave observers ample room to admire the designs from 10 University graduates whose disciplines ranged from product design, interior, apparel and graphic design. “I like seeing work from alumni. It shows that students have something to look forward to when we graduate. We are learning all these skills,” visual communications major Megan Chen said. The diversity of designs in the exhibition gave each section of the room a different character. In one corner, outstretched arms with hands made to grasp a long chandelier intrigued viewers to learn more about their handy function. On the other side of the room, two guitars and a ukulele hung side by side producing a different note altogether. Next to each design was commentary about the alumni artists that created the piece, the creative process behind the work and the inspiration the alumni received from their schooling at SF State.
