Mount Ida College

School of Design Gallery


The mission of the School of Design Gallery at Mount Ida College is to enhance student learning by featuring the work of our distinctive students, as well as innovative national and international artists and designers who are active in the varied fields of art and design.


The purpose of the School of Design Gallery is to support the learning of all our students with real-world experience both locally and globally. The exhibitions enhance conversations about the professional, cultural and social role of art and design in the world. Contemporary working professionals are invited into the School of Design to expand the classroom/studio experience. The local and global experiences of these artists and designers are shared with the students and the greater public through the exhibition of their work, presentations, field trips, workshops and/or symposiums associated with the exhibitions.
