Throughout the fall we will be spotlighting the art and research undertaken by both full- and part-time faculty in the 2022 MCAD Faculty Biennial. This year some fifty faculty members in the college’s Arts Entrepreneurship, Design, Fine Arts, Media Arts, and Liberal Arts Departments will be participating in an exhibition in the Main and Concourse Galleries and presenting papers, film screenings, performances, and readings as part of a Faculty Forum Series in Auditorium 140.
