AC+D Summer Spotlight: Linda Heidvogel
July 09, 2019
This summer AC+D second year, Linda Heidvogel, spent time in Joshua Tree, CA, as Yucca Valley Material Lab's first-ever intern!! The AC+D program encourages each student to seek out internships and opportunities that expand their education beyond the classroom and create in-roads for future career pathways! Yucca Valley Material Labs, founded and directed by Heidi Schwegler, former AC+D Program Chair, offers artists the opportunity to participate in residencies, classes and workshops in Joshua Tree, CA, and is a close partner of the MFA AC+D program.
During my time as the first Intern at Yucca Valley Material Lab (YVML), I designed a multifunctional space that Heidi Schwegler and I were able to begin and complete the first 1/3 of its construction. The current Interns are continuing the efforts and it is expected to reach completion of the basic forms by August. It will function as an outdoor gallery, a place to gather and rest, and will eventually offer increasing shade from the hot sun over time as our introduction of native desert plants increase in scale. I assisted with the design of the resource library that will reside in the Airstream on her property, learned the technical and rewarding aspects of kiln-formed glass casting and glass slumping, assisted Micheal Endo in preparation for his workshop at the YVML studio, and was available to glean a wealth of knowledge from Heidi and her experiences with getting her residency and studio workshop program underway. I will be returning for one week in the month of September to complete my 180 intern- ship hours and to assist in realizing the completion of all of the hard work that has been invested by Heidi and her visiting Interns this summer.

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry. The event will take place with Miller’s ongoing exhibition as a backdrop for the talk.
