Spring Into the New Term With These RMCAD Events

If you haven’t been keeping up with all of the events going on at RMCAD, the new term is a perfect time to start. This month, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with visiting artists and creative professionals, discover more about the artists you work with every day (i.e. your instructors and peers), and learn new skills. Here are a few highlights.

Mark Your Calendar 

Faculty Lecture Series
Thursday, March 8, 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.
Mary Harris Auditorium

What do your instructors do outside the walls of RMCAD. They do a lot, actually. As working artists, designers, and scholars, they produce some pretty amazing work. Join us for the next installment of our Faculty Lecture Series, where Alicia McKim (Graphic Design and Fine Arts) and Samuel Helms (ELET) will give short talks about their work, process, and research. This event is open to RMCAD students, staff, faculty and alumni.

Annual Student Exhibition

Every March, RMCAD celebrates the hard work of our students at the Annual Student Exhibition. Come to the opening reception and awards ceremony to see the work of your fellow peers, enjoy some free food and refreshments, and find out who will win the Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards for their work. The exhibition will be on display through March 30.

View From the Edge: Hugh B. Alexander
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 8, 5 – 8 p.m.
