The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Atlanta is bowing a new museum dedicated to fashion, it announced August 27.

The museum, named SCADfash, will open its doors on October 1, and its inaugural exhibition, Oscar de la Renta, will run from October 3 to December 21.

SCADfash will add 10,000 square feet of space — comprising a public gallery space, a fashion conservation lab, and a media library for educational film and digital presentations — to SCAD’s existing 27,000 square feet of academic studio space, serving the institution’s fashion and fashion marketing and management students.

It's a dollar menu deal for artist studio space.

A proposed mixed-use building in Ridgewood at 176 Woodward Ave. plans to dedicate 3,000 square feet for artists and community groups to rent space for $10 per year — under a buck a month.

Developer Slate Property Group added the feature after working with Councilman Antonio Reynoso to obtain his support for a zoning variance on the property, which is currently zoned for industrial use, according to Reynoso's office and Department of Buildings records.

Glasgow School of Art has said there will be special bursaries for the students most seriously affected by the fire in its Charles Rennie Mackintosh building last week.

Up to a hundred fine art students who lost work in Friday's blaze will receive the Phoenix bursaries, providing studio space for up to six months and a living allowance while they rebuild their portfolios.

The director of Glasgow School of Art, Prof Tom Inns, said: "The beating heart of the GSA is its students and our priority is to ensure that all those most seriously affected by the fire are given the opportunity to rebuild their practice."

Art Dealer Plans to Buy Jail to House Collection

Art, photography, and furniture dealer, Daniel Wolf, and Maya Lin, his award-winning architect wife, are planning to purchase the Yonkers City Jail for $1 million. The couple will turn the rundown, 10,000-square-foot structure into studio, gallery and loft space. The former jail closed in September and was put on the market by the city for $2.5 million.

The space, which will be designed by Lin, will house Wolf’s collection and serve as a base for dealing art as well as holding exhibitions and other public events. Yonkers’ Mayor, Mike Spano, said, “This prime waterfront real estate in the heart of our vibrant downtown area was no place for a jail, but it’s an ideal location for an international art collection like that of Daniel Wolf.”    

A closing is expected in December when the city approves the transaction.
