The event, which opens on January 10,  will showcase the wide variety of design talent within Rhode Island including graphic, fashion, furniture, yacht and product design as well as architecture, interior design and interactive technology development. Additionally, teen designers from JAC's Youth Design Studio program will share the work they have created in the inaugural session of the center's design curriculum made possible by a grant from the van Beuren Charitable Foundation.

The show will run for 4 weeks with an Opening on January 10th from 5:30-8:30.  A number of designers will do short informational talks, presenting their work that evening.
