The renovations of the English Department lounge are almost complete. You’ve got to love a makeover–care of the wonderful Laura Van Biber and Elise Katzif Walker, MA students in Interior Design and members of Project George–that includes mod touches such as knitted “poofs” and Lucite chairs. There’s also the amazing wall–not shown in this photo–covered in HudsonPaint chalkboard paint and colorful chalk for messages, doodles, and inspiration.
Next up: a few minor repairs, installation of a couple of wall magazine racks, and the hanging of several pictures, including a print of a circa-1940 Works Progress Administration (WPA) poster by the artist Arlington Gregg. Are you a member?
Look for an announcement soon of our lounge dedication party.
