Now open: MassArt Made
Massachusetts gets its very first college-affiliated retail boutique. Don’t worry, it’s actually much cooler than it sounds, due in no small part to the fact that the aforementioned college is the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. This airy little shop is packed with tons of goodies from fifty artists, all culled from MassArt's massive network of students, faculty, staff and alumni. Each piece of art, jewelry, hand-woven textile or screen-printed wearable was selected by a jury for inclusion in the store’s stock, and 10% of the profits from their sale goes directly to benefit MassArt scholarships.
