Interior design students in Fort Hays State University's Department of Art and Design are exhibiting their work in the Moss-Thorns Gallery of Art in Rarick Hall, room 102, on the FHSU campus.
The exhibit, which opened Jan. 31, will run through Feb. 20, is divided into several sections, each set up by a different student. On one corner are blueprints, sketches and dioramas. On one side is a design of a bathroom with a toilet and a claw-foot tub with floating candles. In another section is a bedroom design featuring a four-poster bed with white silk curtains. A dining room design has tribal spears adorning a wall behind the table, and the living room section has a bar, a writing desk and a statue of a giraffe on the coffee table.
The tribal artifacts were loaned by the Sternberg Museum of Natural History for the purpose of the exhibition and are not for sale. Local furniture stores also provided items for the exhibition.
"The exhibition is meant to be a senior showcase for the interior design students," said Joel Dugan, assistant professor of art and design. "It is meant to show the breadth of each student's study." The exhibit is free and open to the public from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
