Students and alumni from the Harvard Graduate School of Design are launching an online Design Yard Sale to raise funds in support of the movement against systemic anti-Black racism. The team will sell and auction creative works donated by the design community, and all net proceeds will go towards the Bail Project and Colloqate Design. Among Design Yard Sale’s offerings will be works donated by renowned designers, artists, and scholars such as Toshiko Mori, Oana Stanescu, Rachel Israela, Jeanne Gang, Billie Tsien, Snarkitecture, Jerome Byron and VERV LONDON. As the event organizers explain, a variety of design items are available for sale at fixed prices, in addition to select items that will be auctioned throughout July. Objects for sale will include original drawings, prints, and sculptures, as well as books, clothing, and furniture, some of which were produced specifically for the Design Yard Sale. “Design and architecture are what we’re good at,” said Yaxuan Liu, a third-year student at the Harvard GSD and one of the event’s organizers. “But right now we need to get resources into the hands of activists and organizers on the front lines of the movement. Design Yard Sale lets us use our skills to make that happen.” View more View full description
