Three SCAD MFA Students to attend Vernacular Architecture Forum in Durham, NC as VAF Ambassador Fellows
MFA students Elizabeth Clappin and Lois Watts of Architectural History, and Stephanie Heher of Historic Preservation won Ambassadors Fellowships providing funding to attend the Vernacular Architecture Forum Annual Meeting to be held in Durham, North Carolina. The meeting theme is “From Farm to Factory: Piedmont Stories in Black and White,” and runs from Wednesday, June 1 through Saturday, June 4. This meeting features two full days of detailed tours of historical architectural features distinct to the area, a day of papers, and a final banquet and awards ceremony. While the application is typically made by a faculty sponsor, the students are expected to act as spokespeople, or ambassadors for the VAF after the meeting, so look for more information in later June on why you should join the VAF and attend their meetings.
