Design professor's work included in NY State of Design exhibit

Work by Judy Livingston, associate professor of design in the School of Art & Design at Alfred University, has been accepted into the New York State of Design Exhibit, the first statewide competition sponsored by the Upstate New York Chapter of the AIGA, the professional association of design.

Works chosen will be exhibited at the Vignelli Center for Design Studies at the Rochester Institute of Technology. An opening reception will be held from 6-8 p.m. Friday, March 23. Awards will be announced at 7 p.m.

According to the exhibition announcement, "The New York State of Design strives to produce more than a collection of beautiful work. Our aim is to illuminate the junctions between business and design, asking all entrants, ‘Why is this an example of excellent design?’"

Livingston joined the faculty of the School of Art & Design at Alfred University in 2001, and was promoted to associate professor in 2007.

Livingston received her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan. She has also studied at the Basel School of Design (Basel, Switzerland), Kyoto Seiko University (Kyoto, Japan), and the College for Creative Studies (Detroit, MI). She is the principal of "Good Work Good Cause," a design studio dedicated to design as a catalyst for positive societal change. Clients include cultural and educational institutions, social entrepreneurs, and
not-for-profit organizations.

Livingston is a member of the AIGA national organization and AIGA Upstate New York chapter. She is a volunteer for the Ad Council of Rochester.
