Award of Distinction: Celebrating Kristina Madsen

FS Stories

Thursday, Jun 24 5:00 – 7:00

Please note that all session times are in Eastern Daylight Time

The Furni­ture Society is thrilled to recog­nize Kristina Madsen as the recip­i­ent of the 2020/2021 Award of Distinc­tion. The Award will be presented during a special virtual program as part of FS Connects Summer Session. 

The Award of Distinc­tion honors and cele­brates those who have had a profound impact on the field, and whose lives, work and efforts have strength­ened the fabric of the Furni­ture Society’s commu­nity. We are proud to honor and cele­brate Kristina this year and invite you to join us for a conver­sa­tion and virtual tour of her studio and work­space with past Pres­i­dent and TFS member, Bart Niswonger.

Pour a glass of cham­pagne as we raise a toast in Kristina’s honor and present her with the Award, created by TFS member, Fred Rose.

All proceeds from this event go towards the estab­lish­ment of a schol­ar­ship for women to attend one of our Educa­tional Grant Partnership experiences.
