President Dennison W. Griffith welcomes Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman to the Art Sale.

More than 1,100 guests packed the Loann Crane Center for Design on Saturday, April 16, searching for their next piece of art, stunning new purse, or custom made creatures—which works out great for the students, alumni, and faculty and staff who sold their work at the biannual show but even better for future CCAD students who will benefit in one of the most valuable ways—scholarships.

The entrance fee from guests raised more than $9,000 to support the CCAD General Scholarship Fund, which means that the attendees aren’t just art enthusiasts; they’re philanthropists.

“Community members consistently come out to our art sales for two reasons,” said Vice President for Institutional Advancement Stephanie Hightower. “They know they will find some of the best artwork Columbus has to offer, but more importantly, they want to support the future of CCAD.”
