DPI Chair Deb Willis was interviewed alongside faculty member Dr. Kalia Brooks on the WBAI "State of the Arts NYC" radio show. Host Savona Bailey-McClain asked the pair about a famous quote from Pablo Picasso: "Every Thing You Can Imagine Is Real." WBAI described Dr. Willis and Dr. Brooks as creators who "have pushed boundaries to retool space or reshaped history or attitudes." The show also included a discussion with two designers from the LAB at Rockwell, focusing on their installations at the Collective Design Fair.
