Field House Deadline, Feb. 15 – What Does It Mean?

Field House Deadline, Feb. 15 – What Does It Mean?

Exhibits at Imagine RIT total over 350 with more than 2,300 students, faculty and staff who manage them.  So where do we put all these innovative and creative activities?  Well, many exhibits are located inside the college buildings from which they derive, i.e. engineering exhibits will be found in the Kate Gleason College for Engineering (Gleason Hall), while artistic displays are primarily in the College of Imaging Arts and Science (Booth and Gannett Halls).  About 20% of exhibits request to be outdoors, while others prefer areas such as Clark Gym, the Student Alumni Union and Global Village.  We try to accommodate exhibitors and their proposal requests as much as possible.  Happy exhibitors make happy visitors!

The Gordon Field House and Activities Center is another large space on campus that teems with activity during Imagine RIT.  This is a space that needs to be specifically requested early on in the proposal submission process so that festival organizers can figure out the best way to place exhibits in this space. We like to have equal representation  from each of RIT’s ten colleges as well as any particularly unique exhibits that could draw long lines of visitors.  Examples of past exhibits that meet this description are the automated hot dog assembler and RITchie’s Ice Cream Experience.

This is why we need your proposal by February 15, 2013, if you and your team of exhibitors would like to be considered for placement in the Gordon Field House. Thank you! — Heather Cottone, Program Chair
