IFDA EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES 2017 GRANTS
• Karen Dzendolet, an interior designer in Western Massachusetts, has won the $3,000 Valerie Moran Memorial Grant, enabling her to visit and study major 20th century historic homes in the Northeast. This grant, supported by IFDA’s New York Chapter, is given annually to a design professional and IFDA member seeking enriched experience through educational programs, focused travel or trade-show visits. Dzendolet says this grant will enable her to “maintain my creative inspiration, which comes from understanding the past and experiencing great design and art first-hand.”
I look forward to visiting and writing about historic 20th century properties this year!!
The first visit is to the Gropius House in Lincoln, MA.
