Turning the career fair on its head

Savannah College of Art and Design created a reverse career fair called Out to Launch (O2L) about seven years ago to empower students to amplify their bodies of work in their own voice.

Looking forward to Sidewalk Arts

To get ready for Savannah College of Art and Design's Sidewalk Arts Festival (April 26), we're taking a visit back to some photos from previous years. The festival is a nod to an art form as old as the 16th century, but we're bringing it into the present like never before.

Using fabric, cotton, embroidery floss, and airbrushing to create the installation, Cash was inspired by the colors and textures of macro photographs of mold, bacteria, and coral.
