Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Salt Lake Community College Fashion Institute students have been selected to bring back a Utah holiday tradition with original window designs. Under the direction of instructor Matt Monson, the students produced candy designs that will be unveiled in the Main Street display windows at Macy’s City Creek Center location on November 15 at 6:00 p.m.
With the theme of ‘The Heart of the Holidays’, the student creations are giant tree ornaments made from candies with a staggering array of colors and textures. Focusing on local holiday traditions, the displays will fill six windows, each 9 feet wide, 8 feet deep, and 12 feet high. In all, the new displays will feature more than 120 pounds of candy.
SLCC students enrolled in the College’s visual merchandising class were among the six local artists chosen from the open call to participate in the project.
The window displays that had been a holiday tradition—going back to at least 1972—at the Salt Lake City ZCMI store return to downtown’s Main Street for the first time since 2007. Construction on the City Creek Center caused the displays to close.
