MassArt Graduate Admissions Information Table

Massachusetts College of Art and Design is a public, independent college of art and design. The college's academic and co-curricular programs prepare students from diverse backgrounds to participate in the creative economy as artists, designers and educators, and to engage in the well-being of their society. As a national leader in visual art and design education, the college influences contemporary culture through the creative accomplishments of its students, alumni, faculty and staff. MassArt is a place where students are encouraged to grow into the artist, designer or educator that they've dared to imagine. Graduate students lead their educational experience by choosing their own path. Whether they stay with one medium throughout their studies, work across media, or develop a collaborative practice our faculty respect students' independent motivation and foster a supportive atmosphere for learning.

Stop by this information table to speak with MassArt Admissions representative Lauren O'Neill to learn more about the College’s programs and application processes!

"Garment-Integrated Technologies Created Using Reactive Vapor Deposition": Chemistry Seminar with Professor Trisha Andrew of UMass

Off-the-shelf garments, textiles and threads/yarns can be nondestructively transformed into electronic circuit components using reactive vapor deposition. Selected technologies created using vapor-coated fibers and textiles will be described, including: (1) smart elbow braces for movement sensing; (2) textile triboelectric generators that convert small body motions into stored energy; (3) thread/yarn supercapacitors that can be sewed or knitted into garments for wearable and portable energy storage; (4) fabric electrodes for bioimpedance spectroscopy; (5) wear-, wash- and ironing-resistant active heating garments; and (6) thermoelectric wristbands that convert stray body heat into stored power.
