Yucca Valley Material Lab Design Build
December 21, 2018
January 10-17, 2019, Michael Rutledge (MFA AC+D, 2018) will lead the inaugural Design Build Intensive for the Yucca Valley Material Lab (YVML). The participants will include four current MFA Applied Craft + Design graduate students. The focus of this week-long intensive will be a decommissioned 1977 Wilderness RV that will ultimately house the YVML artists-in-residence and workshop instructors. Led by Rutledge, the design-build team will be tasked with creating a space that resonates the expanse of the Mesa and the untethered possibilities of art residency. A space for uninhibited creative exploration, YVML is for those coming from disciplines ranging in but not limited to craft, design, fine art, writing, and music.
The 2020 MFA in Applied Craft + Design cohort is excited to present the outcome of a year of hard work, trial and error, and exploration.
MFA AC+D is participating in Design Week Portland by hosting an amazing pop-up studio sale and open house!
