Donna and Robert Dunay have been invited to present work at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. The exhibition titled, Time for Design, explores the evolution of design solutions and the intersection of various design disciplines through an in-depth look at intention, concept, process, outcome, and client relations. By focusing on unique, diverse and illuminating examples in our immediate community, the goal is to foster relationship between design and social, economic, and political initiatives.
The installation includes graphic, fashion, interior, industrial design and architecture and also features a series of short video interviews with the participants. The opening reception is Friday Oct. 27, 6 to 8 pm. The exhibition will run through Dec. 10.
