DCAD 25 Years Celebration : Alumni Show
Since DCAD was founded in 1997, the world of art and design has evolved considerably, with our college not only sharing in the journey but being a driver of major changes that have elevated the appreciation for—and opportunities open to—creative minds. At a time when art and design was largely considered the realm of an elite few creating “pretty works to look at,” DCAD set forth on a mission to expand the definition of “art” and “artist” and demonstrate the immense value and power of creativity. As pioneers in transforming art and design into thriving careers and vibrant communities, DCAD and our students have woven our influence into the world in which we all live, work and play. For 25 years, we have been proud to nurture the dreams, abilities and passion of tens of thousands of students and support their pursuit of paths that define and enrich their lives and the lives of those around them—from the fashion boutique on the corner to the desks of global animation powerhouses.
