About KyCAD:

Founded in 2009, The Kentucky College of Art + Design is proud of its success. Core values and principles have helped to shape the institution and our work toward a mission to provide a transformational experience for our students.

As a brand-new college looking to demonstrate the value of the arts to society, we embrace the ability of the arts to reflect a generation's interests and opinions. This college places the meaning of practice and the artist's voice besides the skills and the tools with which we speak.

From our histories to new technologies, from our crafts and material practices to a new digital world of the virtual and unreal, we investigate the very roots of what it means to be human in a wide variety of ways. Artists use not only intuition and speculation but also spiritual, emotional, analytical and material ways to search for new knowledge.

In November 2018, the Kentucky Council on Post-Secondary Education granted KyCAD the authority to grant a BFA in Studio Art. KyCAD is currently seeking full accreditation that will enable student access to title IV Federal Funding.

The Kentucky College of Art + Design is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce by ensuring all our students, faculty, and staff work in an environment of openness and acceptance. We strive to foster a community where people of all backgrounds, identities, and perspectives can feel secure and welcome. We also value the well-being of each of our employees and are dedicated to creating a healthy place to work, learn and live.
