Sponsor // Mount Gay Presents Four Original Spirits

Mount Gay, the world’s oldest existing rum house from the island of Barbados, has created four video portraits of “Original Spirits” who share their values of heritage, craftsmanship and hands-on artistry. Each video focuses on a different creative: Pete Raho, owner of Gowanus Furniture Co; Brock Willsey, owner of fashion boutique Vividbraille; photographer Ernesto Roman; and James Tucker, Co-founder of the celebrated letterpress studio – The Aesthetic Union.

In his video portrait, James Tucker, who still uses a number of mechanical presses, talks about the key values of his practice including the preservation of time-honored techniques, an understanding of materials, and the production of hand crafted products. “With Mount Gay, I really like how their every barrel is mixed by hand, how the wood is selected, how they’re in the same location since 1703. They seem to be preservers of some kind of old way like I am, I really respect that.”

While buying art online is convenient, before you spend $1,500, wouldn’t it feel great to know that an experienced eye has singled out your piece as strong work?

Sponsor // SCI-Arc Now Accepting Applications for Master of Architecture Program

SCI-Arc’s elective vertical studios pair small groups of upper-level, graduate, and undergraduate students with elite faculty and international architects. In these studios, students develop projects which focus on particular interests. They have the opportunity to work with architects visiting the school, and gain insight into a broad range of issues concerning approaches to building, the environment, technology, and theoretical stances.

Visiting faculty Jeff Kipnis’ design studio, one of 10 vertical studios offered at SCI-Arc this fall, is focused on developing a design proposal for a hybrid brothel/child-care center (watch a video intro here). The unique brothel will offer female and male services to select clients with a full range of additional optional accommodations including gourmet meals, fine libations and entertainment. The day-care/pre-school would accept infants through kindergarten, scheduled and on short notice. For every age and length of stay, the school would be programmed, outfitted, and staffed to match the extraordinary service level of the brothel.

SCI-Arc is now accepting applications for the Master of Architecture program. Deadline to apply is December 15, 2014.Sponsor // SCI Arc Now Accepting Applications for Master of Architecture Program sponsor
