Steven Heller

Held on March 28th, the MFA Design Thesis Defense was attended by a score of critics, alumni, advisors and faculty. This is traditionally the penultimate piece in the MFAD Venture puzzle that ends with next Wednesday’s April 17 Venture 19 Forum. Degree candidates presented the results of their research and development before pitching it to the public and design community. Offering support, encouragement and advice were: Adam Katz, Marc Rabinowitz, Sasha Prood, Ada Whitney, Juan Diego Soto, Joseph Cuillier, Deborah Adler, Jose Fresneda, Justin Colt, Gael Towey, Laura Gunther, Joe Marianek, Tyler Mintz, Andrew Herzog, Jennifer Kinon, Mint Thongongarj, Jessica Hsin Hua Lin, Josh Hester, Yiming Bao, Deborah Hussey, Willy Wong, Eric Corriel, and Jane Fujita. Come to see the shined and polished ventures at the SVA Theatre on April 17.
