Visual Merchandising students create Uptown window displays

College of Design Visual Merchandising students have created storefront window displays for 14 businesses in the Uptown area. In collaboration with the Uptown Association and the American Heart Association, the students were instructed to design displays that incorporated Goldy Gopher, healthy lifestyles, and store merchandise with the theme of "What's Goldy Up To In Uptown."

Voting for the People's Choice Award began on April 9, 2011 with a "Shop and Walk to Wellness Day" and will continue at Calhoun Square or online through April 15, 2011 when the temporary displays will be removed.
