Art’s purpose lies deeper than purely aesthetic delight; it has the power to question, unite, and change cultures. In public spaces or intimate galleries, design defines how we experience works of art and absorb cultural information. By way of GSD exhibits, lectures, research, and the act of creation, the School similarly engages the public through beauty that is driven to transform.
The GSD is in a unique position to build on our rich creative history, holding such roots sacred even as we explore new realities in science, technology, the humanities, and more. By providing access to the School’s rich body of design research, collaborative innovation, and effective theory, we educate and inspire our greater community about the power of design.
