Throughout the fall we will be spotlighting the art and research undertaken by both full- and part-time faculty in the Arts Entrepreneurship, Design, Fine Arts, Media Arts, and Liberal Arts Departments as well as the graduate programs in Graphic and Web Design, Sustainable Design, and Visual Studies. The 2020 MCAD Faculty Biennial will feature a wide variety of media and formats that will showcase the breadth of the faculty’s expertise and offer audience members multiple opportunities for remote engagement.

A schedule of online viewing and participatory activities will be available August 28.
