Thoughts for the MCAD Community on the George Floyd Tragedy

Dear MCAD Community,

Like all of you, I am deeply disturbed by the tragic death of George Floyd on Monday. As a person of color and as a parent, it is hard for me not to feel deep anguish and alarm at these events. While I unequivocally support that justice must be served for George Floyd and his family, justice and equity was something owed to him and his family a long time ago–well before the moment of his passing.

Posters for Parks 2020 Show

Even in the midst of uncertainty, life goes on – and so will the Posters for Parks show!

Thanks to a global pandemic, this year’s show will almost certainly be different than in years past. How? We don’t know yet! We do know that the show, featuring posters inspired by Minneapolis parks, will take place in late September or early October – ideally with a gallery space that can be safely visited (as allowed) by those who wish to do so, but also with options for online purchase and curbside pickup.

New Vice President of Academic Affairs

Dear MCAD Community,

I am pleased to announce the hiring of Robert Ransick as the next Vice President of Academic Affairs. As of July 1, Ransick will replace retiring Vice President Karen Wirth, who began her career at MCAD in the early 1990s and also served as interim president for the 2018-2019 academic year. When we can be together in person, I look forward to honoring Karen for her invaluable contributions to the college.

Whew, what a semester! We want to give you a huge "shout out" for getting through the second half of the semester! You already had expected the challenges of a normal spring semester.

April 24, 2020 Update from President Sethi

Dear MCAD Community,

First, I want to thank you for taking your time to participate in the on-line forums that have taken place over the last two weeks. We have had the chance to hear directly from our graduating seniors, non-graduating undergrad students, and our masters candidates. This afternoon we hosted a forum for our MCAD staff. With one more on next week’s schedule for our faculty, we would like to continue these conversations to keep the lines of communication open and support idea sharing within our community.
