The College of Visual Arts in Saint Paul, Minnesota, is a private, accredited, four-year college of art and design offering a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in fine arts, graphic design, illustration, fashion design, and photography.
It strikes a chord in my heart because it's the college my oldest son attended and...
It's where he grew and developed his gifts in
interactive design, art, directing & photography!
Economy and declining enrollment are the root cause of the closing
It is a beautiful school that is housed in one of the old mansions on Summit Avenue
It has graduated many gifted students including my son and my nephew Jamey, who went on to open his own business a few years after his graduation
Check out his website here
Here's what my nephew Jamey tweeted today....
"We (sevnthsin) were founded within the walls of
@CVA_edu back in 2000. Wouldn’t exist without them. So sad to see them closing" -
CVA will be missed by the community as well as past & present students!
