This past fall, the KCAD Admissions Team traveled the country and met with hundreds of high school students and saw a diverse group of young artists. From their travels they invited 24 students to take part in Premium Talent Weekend, a unique admissions event immersing these students in the culture of KCAD and Grand Rapids. This is a beautiful capture of that weekend.

Thanks to all the Admissions Team, Administration, Faculty and KCAD students for hosting an incredible experience. Thank you Premium Talent students for sharing your curiosity and excitement.

Six students from the Metals/Jewelry Design I and II courses researched, designed, and presented designs for the Hope Network 50th Anniversary Gala. Working with their marketing team to design a 'President's Award' and 'Hope On' award, two students, Elaine Zheng and Zihan Wang, had their pieces selected. These works were then produced with the assistance of the Allesee Metals/Jewelry program faculty and the FlexLab. Elaine and Zihan were able to attend the gala at Steelcase. Congratulations to both of you!

Even though Winter Storm Electra was a just another day here, we got a nice time-lapse glimpse of #GrandRapids life.

I would get rid of a lot of that blank space where the actual video ends.
