30 perks of living in a college town
The Massachusetts College of Art and Design has long held annual art sales, but now there are deals to be had all year. The work sold at the new MassArt Made – original creations by students, faculty, and alumni – starts at around 10 bucks, and includes iPod cases and T-shirts, ceramic pieces and watercolors. The store gives its artists half of the purchase price and puts 10 percent of its gross income (and all net profit) toward scholarships for students.
