This past Tuesday, February 21st, 2017, Tyler School of Art welcomed the Renfew Center and their traveling exhibition entitled 'The Art of Recovery: An Exhibit of Work by Women in Recovery from Eating Disorders' in the Tyler atrium. Over 60 people were in attendance for the event, including Professor Lisa Kay's Introduction to Art Therapy class. After hearing presentations by art therapist Sondra Rosenberg, ATR-BC and Shelby, a Renfrew Center alumna, students and attendants were able to engage them in discussion about their experiences at the Renfrew Center. After attending the event, one student remarked that it was "an eye-opening, deeply affecting experience".

Emerge 2014 attracted more than 320 entrants from artists in 32 countries and 35 universities. 42 of the artists were selected to win awards.
MFA Glass student Kate Clements received the Emerge 2014 Academic Award for her piece Untitled (Wall). It was her second time submitting work.
"While I was in undergrad at the Kansas City Art Institute I got into Emerge 2010 but wasn't an award winner," Clements said. "The push for me to apply this year came from Sharyn O'Mara and the glass department's artist in residence Dan Clayman, they were both excited and confident that the piece would do well in the show and that I should make time to apply even though it was at the end of the semester. I almost didn't apply!"
Winners were announced at the show's opening. Clements found out that she had won through a Facebook post.

Adjunct Jewelry Professor Doug Bucci makes all of his jewelry on a 3D printer. His piece "Sweetmeat" is currently on display for the Museum of Art & Design's "Out of Hand: Materializing the Postdigital" exhibition.
"Two years ago, I was invited by MAD's curator Ron Labaco to be a part of the Out of Hand exhibition," Bucci said. "Labaco had seen the beginnings of my new series 'Sweetmeat' at the 2011 SOFA New York exhibition. The work was presented by Sienna Gallery as part of the exhibition 'Covet'."
His piece is an epergne, or centerpiece, that was 3D printed and made up of stainless steel, nylon, biocompatible resin, silicone, and 18k gold.
"I suspect, the main reason Labaco chose the piece was because of my use of Computer Aided Design and Rapid Manufacturing techniques I used in the piece," Bucci said.

The last time I mentioned a Quaker meetinghouse on this blog was in the context of two-hundred-year-old bricks. During that visit I had asked about contemporary meetinghouse design. Well, really my question was more basic than that, “Are there Quaker meeting houses still being built today?” I asked.
“Actually, there’s a new one about to open in Chestnut Hill,” I was told, “with a meeting space designed by James Turrell.”
