Making the Future

Alumni artists and designers suggest various ways critical thinking and hands-on making are more relevant than ever for producing meaningful work "of consequence" and meeting the complex needs of the 21st century.

A Creative Community

"The studio" isn't only where art is made, it's also where community is created. Working closely with fellow students and faculty invested in your progress, you'll share valuable discoveries about the ways art and design connect to the world.

"Students here are phenomenal: hardworking, on point, willing, smart and engaged in active dialogue. That's a community I want to be a part of."

Keetra Dixon, Assistant Professor of Graphic Design
