Art and Design Education gets all Mixed-up
Unpredictable, Strange and Tasty
Modern Art and Design Education originated in Germany, with the Bauhaus, nearly a hundred years ago. After WWII, Art and Design Schools began to appear in the U.S., as a response to a growing academic demand of returning veterans and other Americans with interest in the Arts. Art Center is currently eighty-five years old. Otis College of Art and Design is approaching one hundred and RISD is one hundred and thirty-nine.
A suspense-filled drama is unfolding in art and design institutions with themes of relevance, viability and longevity.
