SVA’s New Street Displays: #UnconventionallyObsessed
The School of Visual Arts is hitting the streets of Manhattan again with their “Obsessorize: Common Objects Uncommon Accessories” public art exhibition. The 28-piece collection—designed exclusively by the school’s students—is coordinated with Marie Claire’s particularly artistic October 2018 issue. Inspired by iconic head-to-toe accessories of the past, the designs displayed in plexiglass cases on Madison Avenue are made out of unconventional materials such as clocks, mirrors, and even Barbie dolls. Below, you will find my top ten favorite pieces from the exhibition that instantaneously triggered an urge for me to obsessorize.
