Fordham Visual Arts students are taking part in the Compass Decal Design Exploration sponsored by the New York City Department of Transportation. The competition is soliciting design proposals for orientation elements to point pedestrians toward their destinations as they exit from below-grade subway stations or descend to the street from above-ground platforms at 16 locations in The Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. The work of Fordham students (and students from other universities) will be on display from December 9, 2008 to January 24, 2009.
