I AM NSCAD: our pride on display
September 15, 2015


What does it mean to have been associated with such a culturally and historically significant Canadian institution? That’s the question NSCAD alumni pondered as they made their submissions for I AM NSCAD.

Coordinated by NSCAD alumna Kelly Markovich (MFA 2011), this large, salon-style exhibition includes work by 166 alumni artists and designers.

"Organizing this exhibition has been a wonderful and rewarding experience", says Kelly Markovich, an artist who is currently teaching the Entrepreneurship for the Arts class at NSCAD. “The response to the call has been overwhelmingly successful. I feel fortunate to be a part of the NSCAD alumni community and I am excited to bring together, connect with and reconnect with so many talented alumni who rally behind and support this amazing institution.”

I AM NSCAD will run from September 29 to October 9 at the Anna Leonowens Gallery, 1891 Granville St., Halifax. This gallery means a lot to NSCAD alumni—for many, it’s the gallery which hosted their first exhibitions. I AM NSCAD will unveil the gallery’s makeover; renovations have been made possible by the Fountain family donation given to the university in 2014.

"This show will be about much more than the work displayed. This will be a rare and overdue opportunity for NSCAD alumni to re-connect in the very space where we once bared our creative souls at graduation," adds Peter Wünsch, President of the NSCAD Alumni Association.

To close the show in grand style, the NSCAD Alumni Association will host a street party and sale of works on Friday, Oct. 9, starting at 5 p.m. Funds raised from the sale will go the NSCAD Alumni Association scholarship.
