The 2010 Open House at the D-Crit Department at the School of Visual Arts was an afternoon of presentations and informal discussion about this exciting two-year graduate program. Watch the video if you missed the event in person: Current students talk about their experiences so far, such as what it’s like to produce a podcast for Kurt Andersen, to get behind-the-scenes access at the Brooklyn Navy Yards with architecture critic Karrie Jacobs, to lift up the hood and study the mechanics of industrial design history with Russell Flinchum, or to create their own blogs with Gawker.com co-founder Elizabeth Spiers. D-Crit chair Alice Twemlow gives an overview of the program, and faculty members including the documentary film producer and director Adam Levy, the recipient of this year’s National Design Award for Design Mind Ralph Caplan, New York Times contributor Andrea Codrington, and “Studio 360″ senior producer Leital Molad, speak about what students can expect from their classes.
If you were unable to attend the Open House, we are happy to arrange another time for you to tour the department and to attend a class or a Tuesday evening lecture. The department chair is always available to discuss your application with you. The deadline to apply is Friday, January 15, 2011.
