Many of Sacramento State’s design students have found professional homes with firms that are the best in the business. A new campus exhibit is designed to spotlight the work of interior design companies that have hired Sac State graduates.

“thealumnishow – Gensler: architecture & design” runs through Sunday, March 16, at the University’s Design Gallery, Mariposa Hall 4000. A reception will be held from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20.

Gensler is a leading international architecture, design and planning firm employing more than 4,000 people in 46 locations. The Sac State exhibit focuses on works from the San Francisco office, although University alumni are employed at several sites. The show includes photos, renderings and sketches of projects in which alumni at the firm have participated.

“The show features the great diversity of projects that Sacramento State Interior Design alumni at Gensler have helped create,” says Design Professor Carolyn Gibbs, the exhibit curator.
