2nd Annual MassArt Student Scholarship Competition & Boston Office 10th Anniversary Celebration April 14, 2016

On April 13, 2017, AKF held its 2nd Annual MassArt Student Scholarship Competition and the Boston Office 10th Anniversary Celebration. Students from Massachusetts College of Art & Design (MassArt) submitted artwork in a variety of media to compete for AKF Scholarships. 50 students submitted over 150 pieces, tripling the number of submissions we received last year. 17 students and 30 pieces were selected for the final round of the competition and were invited to display their work in the AKF office. All of the pieces will remain in the office for one year. The two winners were selected by a panel of judges at the event and they each received a $2500 AKF Scholarship towards their tuition at MassArt. Congratulations to the two 2017 AKF Scholarship winners, Michelle Yun and Madison LaRose!

In addition, we held a celebration for the 10th anniversary of AKF's Boston office. Over the last decade, we have grown from an office with 3 members and a few projects to 51 members and over 300 projects. Thank you to all of our clients and friends who have contributed to the success of our firm over the years.
