Industrial Design Students Lead Campus Effort to Create Face Masks
Assistant professor Kevin Phaup (industrial design) at JMU’s School of Art, Design and Art History and his sophomore studio class (INDU 202) are remotely leading a campus effort to redesign and produce hundreds of fabric face masks to help the community during the coronavirus pandemic over the coming weeks.
The group will make 200 face masks in conjunction with Rockingham Memorial Hospital (which is providing supplies and patterns) and 300-500 face masks for the Augusta and Rockingham County fire departments. Shipping to and from students and then to the recipients will be paid for by SADAH.
