Just in time for the holiday shopping season, several members of the SVA community are displaying their work at the Degenerate Craft Fair (DCF), a traveling pop-up shop featuring handmade works of art. Organized by Art History, BFA Fine Arts and BFA Visual and Critical Studies Department faculty member Amy Wilson (BFA 1995 Fine Arts) and current BFA Visual and Critical Studies Department student Shannon Broder, the DCF will have jewelry, stuffed animals, CDs, stickers, clothing and books, all generally priced under $50.
