LOS ANGELES – May 11, 2011 – Industry Gallery at the Pacific Design Center presents a special exhibition of work by Otis College of Art and Design Product Design students. The works were juried by Otis Product Design Department Chair Steve McAdam, Otis Product Design Department Assistant Chair Michael Kollins, and noted design expert Christopher Mount, previously the curator of architecture and design at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and former Editor-in-Chief of I.D. Magazine.

The exhibition opening reception is on Thursday, May 26, 2011 from 5 to 8:30 p.m. The Otis student work will be on view through Friday, July 8. The exhibition will be held in Exhibition Space B-270, 8687 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood, California, 90069. All items in this survey of Otis Product Design student work are available for purchase.

"The Otis/Industry Gallery collaboration at the Pacific Design Center offers our Product Design students a tremendous opportunity to showcase and sell their work in soft and hard goods design in a professional environment," says Steve McAdam. "One of the most important elements of the Product Design Program at Otis is to position students and their work in a real world context," he notes. "The opportunity to be in the PDC community, to be assessed by professionals they are designing products for, and to be in an environment like Industry Gallery provides exactly that type of experience."

"Emerging talent in design, art, fashion and other disciplines, is what collectors, curators, media, trend analysts and others pay close attention to," explains Craig Appelbaum, owner of Industry Gallery. "It's where we find excitement, raw and bold ideas, and new ways of interacting with our environment. I wanted to highlight and celebrate the remarkable creativity of the emerging designers coming out of Otis. I'm honored to be working with Otis' Product Design Department on this endeavor and look forward to introducing this outstanding work to visitors to our Southern California Industry Gallery venue."
