All Day Art & Design Alumni Exhibit - Suffolk Art Gallery
NESAD Grads: Out in the World

At New England School of Art & Design, faculty are deeply engaged with their students. The connection between students and their teachers works in both directions, and often remains long after the academic experience ends – as a professional relationship, or as a philosophical or creative influence. Nurtured here, this group of alumni carries with them a passion for their chosen field, the skills to express themselves and their ideas, and the discipline to realize them. They have the all-important ability to communicate and connect with the larger world through relevant art and design. The exhibition represents all areas of study at New England School of Art & Design, including Illustration, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Interior Architecture and Fine Art.

NESAD Grads: Out in the World Alumni Exhibit

An exhibition of alumni works organized in conjunction with Suffolk University Homecoming Weekend, October 17-20

At NESAD, faculty are deeply engaged with their students. The connection between students and their teachers works in both directions, and often remains long after the academic experience ends – as a professional relationship, or as a philosophical or creative influence. What a professor shares with a student, perhaps even casually, may have a lasting imprint on the life and career of that person.  Sometimes the opposite occurs.

 

Nurtured here, this group of alumni carries with them a passion for their chosen field, the skills to express themselves and their ideas, and the discipline to realize them.  They have the all-important ability to communicate and connect with the larger world through relevant art and design. The exhibition represents all areas of study at New England School of Art and Design, including Illustration, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Interior Architecture and Fine Art.
