Amanda DaSilva, Otis College Alum and Veteran, on Her Passion for Product Design

“I didn’t even know product design was a thing,” says Amanda DaSilva (BFA Product Design ’19). “But now that I’ve gone through it, and am so passionate about it, I love when people ask me, ‘What’s product design?’ I’m like, ‘It’s that chair you’re sitting in, that cup you’re drinking out of, that magazine you read yesterday.’ Everything is a product.”

Alumna Jules Rochielle to Collaborate with Female Veterans

Female veterans in Harlem will soon be collaborating with artists as part of an initiative to bring art out of museums and into city government.

The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs plans to announce on Monday that Social Design Collective, a project spearheaded by artist Jules Rochielle, has been chosen as artist-in-residence at the Mayor’s Office of Veterans’ Affairs.

Otis Celebration of Military Veterans in the Arts

Last night, Otis College of Art and Design and the Otis Veteran’s Association, in conjunction with Craft in America, presented an evening honoring America’s servicemen and women. 
 
Held on campus, the event began with a live demonstration sponsored by the Los Angeles-based Art Options Foundation as part of its Face to Face visual art project, which involves the sculpting of 100 life-sized busts of men and women veterans as an act of remembrance and historical record.
