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.
This May the First Year MFA Candidates are headed to Rockaway Beach, OR for a weekend retreat focused on professional development and sustaining a life-long creative practice!
We’re so excited to announce Mel McKinley (MFA AC+D '18), as a recent Artist-in-Residence at Red Lodge Clay Center in Red Lodge, MT!
