New campus possible
An article in the Dallas Morning News indicated that the Savannah College of Art and Design is looking to expand geographically. The report mentioned that SCAD representatives have visited a number of cities, states and countries in order to research possible sites for a new campus. Two locations that were looked at include Dallas and San Diego. A decision about the potential acquisition might be announced some time in the next few months.
Professors exhibit work
Two Savannah College of Art and Design professors will have work on display this month in the 2Car Garage Art Gallery on 30 W. Broughton St. The exhibition “Random Cinder Blocks Digitally Mastered: Work by Todd Schroeder and Craig Drennen” began Fri., April 4 and lasts until Monday, April 28. The work is conceptually based; Schroder’s work was inspired by a cinder block that was present in his backyard and studio. Drennen’s work was inspired by the movie “Supergirl,” released in 1984. The gallery’s normal business hours are Monday through Saturday from 12-6 p.m.
