Meg Farmer – SVA MA Design Research

Meg Farmer brings a background in art history, printmaking, and magazine writing to her current work in marketing and project management at HMA2 Architects. Meg received two Bachelors of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art (2005) and since then has worked in award-winning interior design and architecture firms such as BAMO in San Francisco and Ellenzweig in Boston, while also contributing to culture magazines such as CHEEK.

Always interested helping creative ideas become reality, in 2004 Meg completed the Master Print Series for artist Sara Sze (a 2003 MacArthur Fellow), whose intricate architectural installation is now on view at the High Line in New York City. Sara Sze is also representing the United States at the 2013 Venice Biennial with her “Triple Point” exhibition.

Forming interactive bonds with artists inspires Meg to share big ideas that are far reaching. Beyond stirring conversation, her interactions provide opportunities to grow her own personal art collection. Boiled down, Meg recognizes the value of forming relationships with artists and designers that enable her to locate ideas the world should be paying attention to.
