BACKGROUND:
The GW Interior Design program, based at GW's Mount Vernon Campus on Foxhall Road, presents an exhibition of M.F.A. thesis projects. This is the second graduate design exhibition held at the Dimock Gallery.  Graduate students synthesize their coursework by pursuing a thesis project of interest to them.  Each student is partnered with a professional interior designer for mentoring throughout the project, which benefits the students by providing them with professional feedback.

The projects range from a renovation design of the Martin Luther King Public Library to promote cultural activities in the community to transitional housing for homeless families that encourages emotional, physical and spiritual healing.  The students in the exhibition are:  Jessica Bauer, Moonjung Choi, Betty Fernandez, Erin Glennon, Gonzalo Gomez, Kristen Gong, Candace Green, Tenecia Harris, Elana Hammerman Mendelson, Alaina Ralph, Maria Ripepi, and Liz Ruby.

For more information on the exhibition, please contact Erin Speck, acting program head, interior design at (202) 242-6705.
