Stevenson VCD students were awarded two commendations for their design work in Carroll Mansion
Nine students in VCD 480: Creative Strategies Studio participated in the United States Department of Commerce sponsored interior design competition. This bi-annual design event invites selected university design students to envision American-made furniture and furnishings in historic spaces. Baltimore’s Carroll Mansion was selected for the 2016 “Made In America” site.
Students presented their design ideas for the designated spaces
Visual Communication Design majors Reagan Anderson, Meghan DeRoose, DJ Evans, Deanna Faid, Alaina Hall, Chelsea Jamerson, Derek Loan, Kayli Offutt, and Lauren Samuelson designed three spaces in the mansion: the Entrance Hallway, the Family Room and the Morgan School of Architecture Exhibition located on the second floor. The VCD design team was awarded two commendations: the “Best In Concept” for the Entrance Hallway space and “Best In Design Communication” for the Morgan School of Architecture exhibition. Five Baltimore artists were featured in the Entrance Hallway and Family Room spaces.
This showcase opens on May 1 and runs through July 10th. To learn more about this project please visit the “Made In America” website or check out this Baltimore Sun article featuring student interviews.
