Design 360 Unlimited to be Presented at Art Gallery
The College of the Canyons Art Gallery opens 2007 with Design 360 Unlimited, an interior design exhibition by the firm of the same name that was established in Santa Monica in 2003. The exhibition will run from Feb. 27 through March 31.
The exhibition will feature the work of principals Dean Singer, a second-generation designer, and his partner, Megan McFarland. Ideas, drawings, plans, boards, materials and an installation will take viewers from concept to finished interior.
A corporation that is primarily concerned with hospitality projects, Design 360 Unlimited's client list includes Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, La Quinta Inn and Suites, Loews Hotels, Trump International and MGM Grand, among others.
Singer developed his international perspective while studying and working in both Florence and London. As director of design at the world's largest design firm, he oversaw hospitality design projects worldwide. Born and educated on the East Coast, McFarland traveled west and had a career in interior design while still a student at California State University, Northridge. She moved from being a partner in a high-end residential design firm in Beverly Hills to her own firm.
Singer and McFarland will be on campus to participate in a question-and-answer session with gallery Director Joanne Julian at noon March 8 in the gallery. Community members are welcome to attend, and admission is free for this interactive exchange of ideas.
An opening reception is planned for 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27 for students, faculty, college staff and members of the public. Admission to the gallery is free. A $1 parking permit can be obtained from the college's South Parking Lot or in Parking Lot 6. The permit allows attendees to park in any regular space in student lots.
Art Gallery and store hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The gallery is closed Friday, Sunday and all college holidays. For additional information regarding this and future exhibitions, please call (661) 362-3613.
