The Greenhouse Studios Team would like to congratulate and extend a sincere thank-you to this year’s group of graduates for all of their efforts and accomplishments during their time as Greenhouse Studios collaborators!
Sylvia Mosiany has been working with us for the last two years while pursuing an MFA in Digital Media & Design, studying digital humanities. In that time, she has contributed to the Greenhouse Studios team in many valuable ways! In addition to her presence on a few of our project teams, Sylvia has also undertaken responsibilities in research on digital publishing as well as helping us to organize many important documents and events.
River Soma, who has also been with us for the past two years, earned an MFA in Studio Art with a concentration in sculpture. Among River’s valuable contributions to our team is the wonderful design process model mural she painted on one of our walls in 2018. She also lent her talents in ceramics to creating several custom vessels for the plants which inhabit our studio space, most of which she also thoughtfully curated (read all about it here)! River was also a member of several project teams, including Convivio, Husky ReView, Léamh, and Tube. Additionally, River managed the curation of our gallery wall, having programmed a number of interesting and fun exhibitions of student & staff artwork, including our most recent show featuring the children of Greenhouse Studios collaborators!
Both Sylvia and River exhibited their thesis work in a very successful and exciting exhibition at the William Benton Museum of Art this Spring, and gave thought-provoking public artist talks as well!
Undergraduate Research Assistant Sophia Valentin joined us in Fall 2018, and has been managing the social media accounts of both Greenhouse Studios and Tube. She has dreamed up so many awesome social media posts and campaigns, and has greatly improved our online engagement! She has applied her many talents into the creation of custom, engaging visual content for all of our channels, and has helped to shape the voice and brand of Greenhouse Studios. Sophia graduates with a BA in Digital Media & Design with a concentration in motion design and animation.
Finally, Ting Zhou will also be moving on after two years at Greenhouse Studios to pursue teaching undergraduate design courses for both UConn’s Digital Media & Design department, and the department of Art & Art History at Eastern Connecticut State University! Ting has made very meaningful contributions to the branding of Greenhouse Studios and its projects, and also has a track record of bringing in delicious homemade snacks!! We have also very much enjoyed visits from Ting’s two young children, one of which even exhibited artwork in our first ever Children of Greenhouse Studios art show this Spring!
