Showcasing a selection of the innovative and award-winning materials contained within the Materials Library, this exhibit is meant to spark imagination and creativity for how one might use these products with light sources. Acrylic materials display many different ways of diffusing light, while LEDs light up the fine fibers mixed within concrete blocks. Explore how these products have been used in the past, and think of all of the potential these materials might have for your future projects!
About the Materials Library
“The CCA Materials Library is an interdisciplinary space where students explore texture and engage imagination. Within its walls, fashion students envision constructing purses from heavy-duty conveyor belt textiles. Film students see high-performance sailcloth and imagine large-scale video projection screens. The idea is to inspire through tactile experimentation, and it's a pretty awesome place.”
Jake Sollins, CCA Alum, former Materials Library Technician
In development since 1999, the Materials Library was funded by three major grants from the George Frederick Jewett Foundation. Contact Joseph Angelo, email@example.com, for an appointment outside regular hours, or to schedule a class visit.
