CCAD turns 140

140 years poster

We don't look a day over 138

Columbus College of Art & Design first opened its doors on Jan. 6, 1879, as a small art school. Now, 140 years later, CCAD is a thriving art and design college and the engine of Columbus' creative economy. We think we've aged well if we do say so ourselves.

Share how CCAD has impacted you, your life, and the Columbus community.
