Spring has finally arrived and once again it’s time for NYU's Department of Design for Stage and Film’s Design Showcase.

Tisch School of the Arts is giving designers and industry professionals the chance to see the future of design during its Department of Design for Stage and Film's 2007 MFA graduating designers May 2-9 (noon to 8pm). The portfolio exhibits—in the form of sketches, set models, professional production photos, and costume displays—illustrate the potential of the 20 graduates in lighting, set, and costume design.

This year's showcase features the work of six set, one set/costume, one set/lighting, one film, six costume, and five lighting students. A preview (3-5pm) and an opening reception (5-8pm) will be held Tuesday, May 1, 2007. There will be an additional session with the graduating students present on Saturday, May 5th from 2pm to 5pm.

To catch a glimpse at the designers of tomorrow, visit the student showcase at Tisch School of the Arts, Department of Design for Stage and Film, 721 Broadway. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, call (212) 998-1950.
