CCAD Alumnus Named in Alive’s ‘People to Watch’ List

People to Watch story from Alive's website

Adam Brouillette (CCAD 2002) was recently listed in Alive’s annual People to Watch list.

The weekly alternative paper carefully selects this list with help from reader nominations. This year, the eclectic group of 11 have something interesting in common. The paper has identified them as people that they think can build Columbus’s brand.

Brouillette is one of several in the group representing the creative class. Since leaving CCAD he has not only been actively engaged in the arts community but has helped lead several collaborative initiatives that are changing the culture of Columbus’ arts community and the landscape of the city, including Couchfire Collective and Junctionview Studios.

The project that Brouillette has his fingers in that is currently attracting attention is the rehab of the old Wonder Bread factory. Called the Wonderland project, the recently vacated urban landmark is being transformed to house art, music, performance, retail and office space.
