Community Arts Inititiative - Hannah Burr PDF Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail

Under the guidance of artist Hannah Burr, students from eight after-school community organizations in the Boston area will respond to works from the MFA’s encyclopedic collection. Through the students’ drawings, audio recordings, and transcriptions, “Fresh Eyes” demonstrates how personal and infinitely varied responses to a work of art can be. Hannah Burr will present the students’ theories, questions, declarations, descriptions, and questions in a layered, dynamic system of color-coded, visually delightful patterns made to draw in visitors, who are invited to look with fresh eyes at what they may not have noticed otherwise.

The Art of Furniture PDF Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail

The Art of Furniture class is a part of the Certificate Program in Furniture Design through the Professional and Continuing Education at MassArt.

In this studio shop course, students initiate and are guided through a hands-on design/build project based on fundamental tenets of furniture design. The woodshop is a beautiful and grand space that inspires the students to get creative and produce unique furniture objects. Some students have returned several times to take advantage of the variety of tools and machines in order to make their own work.

The class is co-taught by Judith Hansen, a sculptor and furniture designer, and Peter Thibeault, an industrial designer.

DAC Open Studios artist: Tim Johnson PDF Print option in slimbox / lytebox? (info) E-mail

Meet  artist Tim Johnson, who will be at the DAC Open Studios on Saturday and Sunday, October 23 and Oct 24, from noon to 5 p.m.:

I grew up in North Quincy, went to RPI in New York to study computer science, spent seven years on the West Coast, and have now lived in the South End for six years.  I’m a proud Bostonian, but also feel lucky to have been able to spend a lot of time in Seattle, San Francisco, and New York City. Living in the South End and having a studio in Dorchester is the perfect combination for me.

For the past 14 years I built software, as a product manager, designer or engineer.  I had a fantastic experience in that industry because I was able to work with so many talented and fun people at awesome companies like Microsoft, Akamai and several small startups.
