“Gratitude, Design-by-Design” Undergraduate Senior
Showcase” is the annual juried student competition
highlighting the breadth, talent, and diversity of the Department
of Design, as shown through the outstanding course work produced
over the past year.
The Red Dress® is the national symbol for raising
awareness of heart disease as the leading killer of women.
Cardiovascular disease kills a woman every minute, more than all
cancers combined, yet is largely preventable through the adoption
of healthy lifestyles.
In 2010, the Department of Design entered into a unique
partnership with the UC Davis Women’s Cardiovascular Medicine
Program to campaign for women’s heart health awareness. This
exhibition showcases 18 red dresses from the UC Davis Red Dress
Collection created by design students.
