Project: CCAD at 140 book

How do you document the impact that an institution has had on a community over the course of 140 years? CCAD at 140 was commissioned by Columbus College of Art & Design leadership as a gift for CCAD faculty and staff to show gratitude and serve as a reminder of the impact that their work has on the city of Columbus and the world at large. The book includes portraits of CCAD faculty and staff, along with testimonials of students, alumni, faculty, and other community members that collectively showcase what CCAD has meant to them as individuals and to the greater public.
