CHROMA: best of CCAD

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Columbus College of Art & Design students are the next generation of artists and designers to shape culture and commerce. They’re the best at what they do. They challenge convention and unleash their vision into the world. And they’re needed now, more than ever. At Chroma: Best of CCAD, you get to see the best of the best of CCAD’s artists and designers. The annual campus-wide juried show and celebration showcases exemplary pieces from each of our majors as well as our CORE programs and our first-year MFA students. 

Chroma: Best of CCAD is free and open to the public. (Parking’s free, too.)

Can't wait for this year's event? Check out some student work showcased in the 2017 event.
