John Everett Scofield’s Award Winning Music Stand

026

John E. Scofield of Sharon, Connecticut, is a craftsman, an artist, a furniture designer. A relative of the famed American painter and illustrator, Norman Rockwell… he also creates. In his youth, he designed a beautiful wood collapsible music stand. Years later it would win an award and end up on display at the Modern Museum of Art in New York City.Music Stand, 1971, LR

That put Scofield on the map. He’s trying to get the stand into the hands of everyday folks…for musicians and composers and in schools, maybe even restaurants as a means to hold menus. He is working on trying to build it affordably and get it distributed.
