Art Center students raise $1,200

February 13, 2010

Okay, I found out that TACDC ASID Student Chapter raised well over $1,200 (and that doesn’t include Pima Student proceeds).  To say that the public generously supported us would be an understatement!  There is much speculation that some of these proceeds will go toward helping interested ASID students attend NEOCON this year.

What is NEOCON?  It is a world trade show for Designers in Chicago.  There are over 40,000 attendees and 700 exhibitors showcasing products for office, healthcare, institutional/educational, hospitality, retail, healthcare, residential, government, and green/sustainable.  Check out their website: for more info. 

EVENT ALERT:  The annual IIDA Masquerade Ball has been announced for Saturday, March 20th, at 7:30pm.  It will be held at JW Marriott Star Pass.  Tickets run $20 for students, $35 for IIDA members, $45 for non-members, and $55 at the door.  Contact for more info.  I have a feeling this is a gala NOT to be missed!  

Design Diction of the Day: Ormolu~ Gilded bronze decorating French furnishings from the French Baroque period (Louis XIV) and later styles.  The bronzed ornaments were attached to corners and edges of furniture.  Unfortunately, mercury was the active element used generating poisonous fumes when heated, resulting in deaths.  This actually increased its popularity and status.
