Closing Reception – Not Sad Cold And Dead (like you thought)

August 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Free

Thursday, August 24, 2017 | 6–9 PM | FREE

Organized by An Dy and Emma Steen

From an Art College consistently defined by phrases such as struggling, underfunded, rising tuitions, financial woes, mitigating the debt, and so on, we see people ask—here directly pulled from one 2012 Art Threat article —“what’s the value in art school?”

Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University, or NSCAD, an opportunity to showcase the work coming out of a school whose students continues to thrive under less than ideal circumstances.  A university the size of NSCAD can take a lot of hits as the public eats up the drama in the death of an institution. While the administration peters around doing what it can to stop money leaking out of every crack and crevasse, we continue to see NSCAD students reacting to this environmental pressure and pressing on, creating work that has a distinct air of enthusiasm under what is now the fleeting passé that there’s not much happening east of Montréal.
