DAAP Works to showcase some of nation's best design talent

Each year the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) hosts an exhibition that highlights the creative output of that year’s graduating class.

The exhibition regularly draws visitors and companies from around the nation to view the final works of DAAP’s graduating class.  Graduating students often will discuss their projects on display with those visiting and field questions on their research or design.

The College boasts several top-ranked programs nationally, many of which are known and respected  internationally.  In this end-of-year exhibition, works from the following programs will be shown:
  • Architecture
  • Art Education
  • Digital Design
  • Fashion Design
  • Fine Arts
  • Graphic Design
  • Industrial Design
  • Interior Design
  • Urban Planning
The almost week-long exhibition will run from Tuesday, June 9 to Saturday, June 13 in the Peter Eisenman-designed Aronoff Center for Design and Art at the corner of Clifton Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive.  Displays are also set up at the Meyers Gallery located in the Steger Student Life Center.

In addition to the installations, the ever-popular Fashion Show put on by the College’s premier Fashion Design program will take place on Friday, June 12.  In past years, the Fashion Show has sold out so quickly that many people have been unable to view the show.  As a result, this year’s Fashion Show will also be webcast at 8pm.

The DAAP Works exhibition is free and open to the public and is open 5pm to 9pm on Tuesday, 9am to 9am Wednesday through Friday, and noon to 4pm on Saturday.
