Judith Leemann's newsest sculpture

Matthew Hincman

Laura Brown and I working on a travel program to rebuild and paint a ceiling and roof structure from the Gwozdziec Synagogue

Laura & Rick Brown's Handshouse Studio are preparing to make a replica of an extraordinary roof structure from the lost Gwozdziec Synagogue. In the first part of the Summer of 2010, they'll be making the timber structure, and then in August the interior will be completely polychromed. This will happen at the Sanok Ethnographic Park (skansen) in Sanok, South Eastern Poland, and be installed in the soon to be built Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warszawa.

Check out the other work they have done surrounding the lost historic wooden synagogues of Poland here.

MassArt Senior Seminar talk: Self-Employed Finance Worksheet

Hey there senior seminar folks! Janna, Janet, and Judy have asked me to come in to talk to you about being self-employed, and how to run a business. It's something I did for while before I began teaching full-time at MassArt. I kinda geeked out on making excel spreadsheets, and I have made a special one for you! I will go over it in class Monday afternoon, but I wanted to give you a heads up about where you could look at this thing, AND where you could download it so you can use it either in MicroSoft Excel, OpenOffice, or on Google Docs.

Here's where you can get it.

See you Monday!

love matthew
