Growing Hope Open Sign
This sign was created during one of my engagement studio courses at the Stamps School of Art & Design. The course allows students to partner with local non-profit organizations and work with them to support the local community through art & design. Our organization was Growing Hope, a farmers market located in downtown Ypsilanti, MI.
The people at Growing Hope gave us a list of requests, with one of them being a new "open" sign, and another being "something that lights up." My project partner and I combined the two and created an LED open sign constructed out of laser-cut pieces and a plywood base on wheels. The LEDs can be controlled via a remote.
