Ia ] aD20/21 Designers lighting forum New England lights Up the bac Loft As a student, Jane Moran traveled to the Frank fur t lighting show Illuminale as the recipient of the DLFNE Scholarship. The Loft at 320 Newbury Street was "enlightened" this fall a s the Designers Lighting Forum of New England, a membership organization committed to exploring a nd presenting the power of lighting in design, held its first Lighting Expo on c ampus.

Jane Moran ‘08, recipient of the first DLFNE Travel Scholarship, spoke to the a ssembled group, presenting an informative a nd creative account of her travel to Frankfurt and the lighting show, Illuminale.

The Cyclorama provides a magnificent venue for AD20/21: A rt & Design of the 20th & 21st Centuries. Je anne Schinto (Maine Antique Digest) wrote about the first annual gala, “The gala was a benefit for a wel l-chosen entity, the Boston Architectural College (BAC). It is New England's largest independent accredited college of spatia l design, offering programs in architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, a s well as the more amorphous design studies. The combination of all those disciplines attracted a very knowledgeable crowd.” She continued, “We a rrived a bit before the doors opened for the gal a and joined a crush of people. Once the imaginary ribbon wa s cut, we all swarmed in. The count for the gala alone was over 570.” It is a prime opportunity to show your support for design educ ation, the preser vation movement, a nd the arts in genera l.
