Join Oregon College of Art and Craft and PNCA for a public studio open house and a performance by Grammy-nominated alt-country singer Tift Merritt, celebrating the launch of the joint MFA degree program.
Merritt creates “a uniquely satisfying stew of rock and roll, soul, folk and country,” according to her fan site. Her 2008 album Another Country garnered four stars by the British music magazine MOJO.
The MFA in Applied Craft and Design is a unique graduate program designed for students eager to explore the fusion of tradition, innovation, and practice, with design theory and hands-on making. The event will showcase the collaborative efforts of its students, who built their own studio space with renowned design/build specialist Steve Badanes, founding member of Jersey Devil.
