This Pop-up Expo in 2017 was the final outcome of an assignment in Professional Practices. Students visited a space and conceptualized how they can use it to sell their work. I set up a collaboration with CU Denver Alumni and found Grant Funding. Students broke into teams to report back to the class on their findings. Teams involved budgeting for table coverings, table rental, catering, layout and marketing. The students designed postcards and mailed them out to Alumni. The event evening aligned with a performance venue at Denver Performing Arts Center. Alumni were invited in to NXT Stage Gallery to pick up their theatre tickets and could buy holiday gifts and meet graduating seniors. The venue included animation and 2D illustration and was open to the public.
