As the founder and president of Morris Nathanson Design, with offices in New York, Boston and Providence, Morris Nathanson has led projects all over the world. He has won many awards for his hospitality venues and restaurants. In 1986, after decades of business travel, Nathanson settled down in his native city, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and renovated an old mill building for his firm’s office. An early advocate for adaptive reuse, Nathanson has been in the forefront of developing Pawtucket as a highly respected arts district. As a fine artist, Nathanson creates paintings, prints, and wood sculptures, drawing from his design aesthetic, bold use of color, and knowledge of modern art. Nathanson received his BFA from the University of Miami, and honorary doctorates from Rhode Island College and Johnson and Wales University.
