Dave Raffenaud. Affectionately known as Dave Raff, our talented co-worker passed away unexpectedly over the weekend. Though Dave had the title Facilities Coordinator at the SCA he was so much more. Dave was a true creative, bringing out-of-the-box thinking to every project he encountered from hanging a 20-foot tree in our Art Studio to assisting with curation on our current “Material Girls” exhibition (plus the “everyday” tasks like painting walls or arranging lobby furniture). Working with Dave was a pleasure because of the high caliber of professionalism he brought to every job and a joy because of the conversation that typically accompanied a task. Dave’s knowledge of topics as diverse as the Beatles songbook to regional historical architecture was always intriguing. We all learned so much from Dave – and will continue to implement the lessons and tips he imparted along the way.
The SCA is honored to accept gifts in celebration of Dave’s life and artistic passion. To gift in Dave's memory please mail your donation to:
