The Summer 2014 MA & MFA Graduate Show is now open at Adam’s Gallery! Our students will have their work showcased there is the coming weeks, and we will celebrate with a reception in their honor on September 3rd at 5:30pm. We hope you can join us!
MAIA alum Leah Cantor is mentioned in today’s Boston Globe style section!
When Waltham interior designer Leah Cantor was tapped by Boston’s Room to Dream Foundation to make over the bedroom of a chronically ill 14-year-old boy named Sean, she jumped at the opportunity. “It was an honor and a thrill,” says Cantor.
After meeting with Sean (Room to Dream does not release last names of families it serves) and his family, Cantor collaborated with interior designer Shalini Sookar to transform the small room with red walls and heavy drapes into a light and airy space with ample area to display Sean’s sports memorabilia. The high school freshman also has room to hang out with his friends, and focus on schoolwork.
“A lot of makeovers for kids’ rooms tend to be based around a theme,” says Cantor. “We didn’t want to do that here — kids’ tastes and loves change over time. We designed something more sophisticated, a space that Sean could grow into.”
Check out the rest of the story here. Well done, Leah!
Congrats to everyone on a successful show!
On March 22nd, several NESAD students and faculty attended the 2014 ASID Design Awards at the at the Mandarin Hotel in Boston.
