BOSTON (CBS) – Mass. College of Art has just opened a first of its kind store, located right on campus.
It’s a unique new boutique called MassArt Made located at 625 Huntington Avenue in Boston. The store features jewelry, clothing, art and other design work created by current and former Mass College of Art students and faculty. Officials say it’s a great way to raise awareness and money for both the artists and the school.
Ginger Russell, the Creative Director and Manager of MassArt Made explains,” ‘MassArt Made is meant to showcase the accomplishments and achievements of Mass Art students, alumni and faculty. It’s really an extension of the school and its’ branding. We want to show the community what people who have come out of Mass Art have achieved in the art world and a variety of industries.”
A portion of the store’s profits goes toward scholarships for Mass Art students. If you’d like more information, visit www.massartmade.com.
