140 Years Reception


On Jan. 6, 1879, what’s now known as Columbus College of Art & Design opened its doors for its first class. CCAD is celebrated with an exhibition looking back at its student exhibitions. 140 Years of Creative Excellence showcased exhibition posters, flyers, and catalogues, including pieces from the late 1800s. On January 15, the 140 Years Reception was held. Here you can see CCAD President Dr. Melanie Corn's speech from that night. Follow the conversation on Instagram and Twitter with #CCAD140.
