Winter Design at UAA Winterfest 2014

After visiting Finland and Iceland for UArctic conferences on Arctic Sustainable Art and Design, art professor Herminia Din was inspired by the use outdoor spaces there and wanted to create a similar atmosphere back home at UAA. Her efforts, along with assistant professor of health sciences Bree Kessler's, resulted in the Winter Design Project: A Design Exploration, which was integrated into the larger UAA Winterfest 2014 event.
