If you’re looking for a new shopping and gallery experience, look no further than The Fridge - a pop-up shop for art and design works by SA+AH students, alumni, and faculty. The name is an homage to the tradition of hanging one’s best work on the refrigerator and will feature #fridgeworthy SA+AH art, design and related products.
UF faculty member Ariella Mostkoff, who has played a large role in creating The Fridge said, “We designed the shop for broad appeal with a range of styles, media, and price points so there will be something for everyone – even if it’s just to see our work. I am personally grateful to so many people for helping to make this happen and especially for the leadership and support of our school’s Friends group.”
Artists will receive a percentage of the sale price and the remainder of the profits will be donated to the Friends of the School of Art + Art History to promote more opportunities for SA+AH students. Mostkoff hopes that the success of this project will lead to many more opportunities for SA+AH students.
SA+AH is also doing an open call for submissions to student, alumni, faculty, and staff to be part of a curated selection of diverse works. Click here to learn more about how to submit your work.
