The exhibit is the work of students from Pratt Institute’s Graphic Design Department led by Professor David Frisco. The students collaborated with RWA and numerous local residents who participated in the judging of the RockSpot project for the fall semester. The exhibit showcases the prototype for a mapped system and tour in which the public is encouraged to nominate sites throughout the peninsula that are noteworthy sites. The exhibit will be on display through January 8, 2010 every Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 4 p.m. The public is encouraged to comment on the exhibit and nominate a site all their own.
