Vignelli Center supporting RIT Angels of Honduras Project

Patients face a grim reality in hospitals in Honduras, but in solidarity with newborn children, a group of Honduran and U.S. citizens have created the Angels Foundation. Federico Alvarez, an adviser to the foundation, explained that even though Honduras has big needs, the foundation has decided to focus on newborns and “give them a chance of life.”


Professor Mary Golden, Chair of CIAS Interior Design, is organizing a team of faculty and students to focus their expertise on supporting a Honduras hospital. Industrial Design students will produce designs for medical equipment and Graphic Design students will develop a brand identity and many applications including a new website.
