Mary Anne Cross-Ehasz Collection

Mary Anne Cross was an Art and Design student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her design skill was acknowledged by RIT’s adoption of her logo design for the university’s official seal from 1956 to 1966. In fact, it was Mary Anne who first utilized the dots between the three letters in the acronym RIT. Even though the university changed logos again in 1966, Mary Anne’s influence on the aesthetics of the logo remain. Just take a peek at the seal she created in this exhibit to see the similarities with our present day logo.
