You know, you get on in years and you start to think that everything has been done. Nothing can ever be new again. So jaded and hard to impress. Then suddenly, it dawned on us that not everyone thinks this way and if they did, their livelihoods would just fall to the wayside and hey, doling out french fries over a greasy counter doesn’t sound so bad afterall.
Those who most definitely do not feel this way and have many years in front of them to prove that innovative thinking still exists are the upcoming graduates of the Ontario College of Art & Design. This year, in its 91st incarnation, the Graduate Exhibition explores and tests “boundaries in their thesis work in all areas of art and design including drawing and painting, photography, sculpture/installation, ceramics, printmaking, jewellery, textiles, integrated media, advertising, illustration, graphic design, industrial design, and environmental design.”
The class of 2006 will be transforming their campus from May 5 to the 7th from 11am to 6pm, admission is PWYC and will be held in and around OCAD’s main campus grounds at 100 McCaul Street. Go on and check it out, perhaps they’ll prove those of us that are so jaded wrong… We’re betting on it.
