California College of the Arts (CCA) is pleased to collaborate with our friends at the Museum of Craft and Design (MCD) for this exhibition that showcases the work of a select group of exceptionally talented Interior Design students.
The museum has extended special free admission for CCA students with valid ID September 21-January 5, 2014.
Focused on design, materials, constructs and atmospheres, the Young Designer’s Show will feature the best of the year’s projects: drawings, renderings, lighting and furniture designs, models, and full-scale material explorations and prototypes.
"The Museum of Craft and Design (MCD) is one of North America’s few institutions dedicated to contemporary practices in craft and design," explains Interior Design chair Cathrine Veikos. "I am so delighted that in April of this year, the Museum of Craft and Design opened a new facility at 2569 Third Street. Even more exciting is the fact that it was designed by CCA alum Gary Hutton (BFA Environmental Studies 1975) and the McCall Design Group."
The Young Designer’s Show 2013: CCA Interior Design Program will coincide with MCD’s New West Coast Design 2 exhibition, which opens October 26, 2013.
Veikos adds: "Museum members and invited designers will celebrate the show on the evening of October 25 to coincide with the MCD’s exciting upcoming exhibition New West Coast Design 2, which will also feature work from CCA faculty members. From the innovative experimentation in studio courses at CCA to the cutting edge of the design profession, the MCD-CCA community connection makes it visible and tangible."
"There is strength in numbers and there is strength in high-quality work no matter what the project or institution may be," says JoAnn Edwards, executive director of the Museum of Craft and Design. "It's our pleasure to join our friends at CCA in creating ongoing opportunities for collaboration, partnership, and artistic excellence in our neighborhood, creating a lively and committed foundation for place-making."
