One of Architectural Digest's Top 100 Interior Designers Comes to USU
Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013
Utah State University’s Department of Art and Design presents guest artist Steven Volpe Jan. 24 at 4 p.m. in the Performance Hall as part of the Interior Design Lecture Series and Arts Week 2013.
“We are so grateful to the Marie Eccles Caine-Russell Family Foundation for its generous support that allows for visiting artists and amazing experiences for our students,” said Darrin Brooks, associate professor of interior design in the Caine College of the Arts.
San Francisco-based designer Steven Volpe is known for his avant-garde masterpieces, perfecting the unconventional juxtaposition of old and new, bold and subtle. One of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Interior Designers, Volpe opened his own firm, Steven Volpe Design, and cofounded Hedge, a design gallery exhibiting noted contemporary artists’ work on an exclusive basis. San Francisco interior designer Richard Tam made Volpe’s career when he gave Volpe the Brocklebank project — a prominent 1926 apartment building adjoining Nob Hill — when he returned from working in Paris.
“Our students are very fortunate to work with designers and architects whose work appears on the cover of major design publications that include Architectural Digest, Interior Design and Elle Décor,” said Brooks.
Volpe’s presentation begins at 4 p.m. in the Performance Hall on USU’s campus, with a reception to follow. The event is free and open to the public.
