SVAD Studio

The School of Visual Art and Design has a partnership with Stormwater Studios, an artist studio community in Columbia. Our own studio space, the SVAD Studio, provides an essential environment for students, faculty members, and visiting artists to develop new work, lead or participate in workshops, give talks, and exhibit their work. We’ve designed our studio to serve as a space to test new ideas and creative experiments, and to connect our students and visitors to the other resident artists. Through the SVAD Studio, we run a Collaborative Residency Program to engage student artist and scholars several times a year. 

As a community-facing extension of the School of Visual Art and Design, we value a diverse range of voices and backgrounds and aim to enrich and contribute to the cultural vibrancy of the Columbia arts community. Join us for our programs to learn more about our project and mission.
