Art makes life meaningful. Design makes life possible. Together they make life wonderful.

Artists and designers experiment with form to realize original, provocative, evocative and innovative ideas. They bring novel ideas to life that replenish cultures, have social benefits and contribute to the global marketplace of ideas.

The life of an artist or designer is full of wonder, enriched with interesting work. We encourage, prepare, challenge and enable our students to create and enjoy their lives as artists and designers.

Our annual exhibition, curated by A + D faculty, presents work from our art, animation, graphic and information design, photography, and video arts programs and our studio art program at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.

This year we are including work of graduate students in our new MFA Information Design and Visualization program.
