NY AIGA RIT and Points South and East

The New York Chapter of the AIGA is geographically large.On May 3rd I was able to come up and speak with them—students, professionals, et al.—for THREE HOURS. Thanks to Chris Goldan for inviting me and taking care of me while I was there (Garbage Plate, barbecue, etc.,) to the RAF for co-sponsoring the invent, to the Rochester Institute of Technology for hosting things, and to the crew running the student chapter (and taking over the leadership this coming year.) Special thanks to everyone who showed up to listen and talk. I had a truly great time and can’t thank you all enough.

Garbage Plate.

Snooped around in the Vignelli monument to Vignelli-ism. Who knew the International Style could be so cheeky?

Vandalism all over campus.

Crowd, filling in. Or maybe they’re running for the exits.

On my drive home I stopped by the International Motor Racing Research Center in Watkins Glen and spent a couple hours talking with Kevin and Bill about all manner of things. Above is a photo of  Seneca Lake, and some weird thing floating/living in the middle of it. What is it?

A lot of cool, one-of-a-kind stuff at the museum.

This was nice to see.

Smalley’s Garage is still there. They wanted 3K for that shitty Kawasaki.

Stopped in Speculator as well. Insanity. So much good stuff in that zone of the Adirondacks.

They sell dept. here.

Then slept for a day and a half with these two hassling me.
