Two Georgia Tech students recently returned from a creative residency in Puerto Rico, and they’ve got stories to tell and photos to share! For the project, arte_FITS x Georgia Tech Arts, Elizabeth Kelly (Industrial Design graduate student) and Danielle Sisson (Architecture undergraduate) were selected from more than 30 applicants to work with renowned sculptor, Luis Torruella, on the creation of an artwork to connect with the physical environment in Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico.
Georgia Tech Arts is proud to announce a partnership with the arte_FITS Foundation through a two-year, $100,000 private gift from Friedel & Carolina Stubbe. The partnership, known as arte_FITS x GT Arts, features two interconnected components: the arte_FITS Fellows program and the arte_FITS Ephemeral Art Fund. Both components will have a transformative impact on both Georgia Tech students and the work of artists in Puerto Rico and beyond.
Georgia Tech students, faculty, and staff have contributed to a number of new works of art, all on display in the Richards and Westbrook Galleries at the Ferst Center for the Arts.
The Ferst Center doors, facing the spacious Arts Plaza and the new John Lewis Student Center, are open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday noon-6 p.m. Students, faculty, staff, and the public are welcome to relax or study, meet up with friends or have a quiet moment, all surrounded by art installations created by their peers and Atlanta artists.

32 SOUNDS PRESS:
“A unique and ephemeral experience…heady and spine-tingling…the filmed narrative is engaging and richly visual.” – The New York Times
“Full to bursting with humor, emotion and curiosity, “32 Sounds” is a uniquely mind-expanding plunge into a dimension of the human experience so many of us take for granted, a rare and rewarding sonic journey with the potential to enrich our lives…puts the entire act of listening in context, such that I doubt I will ever hear things quite the same way again. ” - Variety
