Since the project began on June 5, the café area has been closed off for construction. Beside it, however, MIT Dining has provided a coffee bar serving Starbucks coffee and a selection of take-and-go meals. The MIT libraries kiosk next to the café has remained closed throughout the project. Once the Forbes Family Café reopens, the center will feature video screens that will highlight MIT library resources, services, and collections, according to an MIT Libraries news release.

It’s a design that gives a whole new meaning to the term “post office wall. ” It’s a project that might make tiny Tieton, Washington’s post office one of the most celebrated in the world, a beacon for reviving post offices and small towns everywhere. It’s a gift that many a flailing, red-ink-soaked organization might gladly grasp. Postal Service isn’t just any organization. Last winter an energetic team of Tieton entrepreneurs and artists offered to replace the rotting siding fronting the local post office with a gorgeous $48,000 façade for the ages, in perdurable glass-tile mosaic. It would be what the project’s prime mover, publisher and artisan-business impresario Ed Marquand, calls “the crown jewel” in a series of glass-mosaic signworks – co-funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and created right there in Tieton,... (The name means “roiling waters,” as in the Tieton River. The Tieton Stamp Mosaic would honor both the town’s and the Postal Service’s civic and graphic heritages. Its design celebrates the can-do optimism expressed in mid-20. According to Marquand, when his artisan-business incubator Mighty Tieton presented the idea to Tieton postmaster Cindy England, “she said, ‘That looks nice, I’ll check with my superiors. ’ They approved it and she said, ‘Go for it. ’” When I called England to confirm, she said she’d been directed not to discuss the matter. England and Marquand signed memos of understanding in February and July. On July 1, Mighty Tieton launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the Stamp Mosaic and create “the coolest post office in America. ” With seven days to go, it’s drawn 276 pledges and surpassed its $48,000 goal. That works out to about $1. 16 per custom-made glass tile. Projected completion: November 2015. And then the U. S. Postal Service brass in the other Washington took note. On July 15, Tom Samra, USPS’s vice president for facilities, wrote (by certified letter, of course) ordering Marquand to cease and desist. ( See Samra’s letter and the MOUs. ) According to Samra, postmaster England hadn’t sought approval and lacked authority: “Agreements related to the sale or alteration of postal owned [sic] facilities must be handled by appropriate officials in the Facilities Department…. In addition, any proposals related to potential intellectual property must be reviewed and approved by a Vice President. In general, the Postal Service. Source: crosscut.com
