Re-Shaping Ideas, Ingenuity in 3D Technology
June 14 – August 2, 2013
Re-Shaping Ideas, Ingenuity in 3D Technology is organized by the McDonough Museum of Art YSU’s Center for Contemporary Art, AST2, Applied Systems and Technology Transfer and NAMII, National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute. 3D printing is a leading edge technology that enables us to print actual objects – one layer at a time. President Obama has declared Youngstown, Ohio to be the 3D center for excellence by establishing NAMII, the first manufacturing innovation hub. Our intent is to build public awareness, understanding and interest in advances in additive manufacturing that are changing the world we live in. This is the 4th in a series of community based projects organized by the McDonough Museum to extend its service as a unique center for public engagement and to further articulate the expansive value of creative thinking in everyday life.

imaterialise warhol challenge
What would Andy Warhol have done with 3D printing?
Back in February i.materialise opened a specific design challenge focused on the distinctive work of Andy Warhol as part of a collaboration with SME, the organizers of the RAPID event. The five finalists, chosen by Murray Moss, will also be on view at the McDonough! http://i.materialise.com/blog/entry/andy-warhol-challenge-the-finalists
