In 2015, Professors Barry Muchnick (Environmental Studies Program) and Carrie Patterson (Art & Art History Department) launched the SMCM Tiny House Project, a two-year, interdisciplinary, experiential, and applied discovery project centered on community arts education and sustainable design. With support from the Mellon Foundation, the Offices of the President and the Provost, and a suite of local and national partners, 110 SMCM students collaborated with high school students at the Forrest Technology Center in Leonardtown, MD in a life-changing experience to design and build two tiny houses on wheels. One tiny house, funded separately by a local non-profit organization, currently houses a displaced veteran as part of a new initiative to house, employ, and support homeless servicemen and women. The second Tiny House, featured here, lives on campus and is an exciting part of our overall sustainability programs.
