MIAD’s Jane Bradley Pettit building originally served as a terminal and warehouse for imported automobiles, and has served multiple ventures before the renovation began in 1989 to the state’s only independent, non-profit college of art and design offering the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. With each of its five floors spanning the length of a football field, it currently houses studios, classrooms, galleries and indescribable talent that fuels our creative economy.
Discover the creative process with students working in their studios and giving demonstrations; experience the creation of work during sculpture lab demonstrations; and explore “Out of the Suitcase,” a Mary L. Nohl suitcase exhibition in the Frederick Layton Gallery. MIAD students will be on hand to discuss their work and life at MIAD.
