DAAPmade 2023

Dates: Sunday, August 27th, 2023 - October 31, 2023

The DAAP Galleries at the University of Cincinnati are proud to present DAAPmade: The Exhibition in collaboration with the UC Alumni Association. This curated exhibition showcases the talent and diversity of production within the art, craft, and design professions from DAAP Alumni. Participants represent five decades of graduates (1970-2021) from a variety of programs. Works in this exhibition across the spectrum of creative production, using all manner of materials, techniques, and addressing a multitude of subjects/topics. It is our honor to welcome our past graduates back in order to showcase their professional creative endeavors to our current students, faculty, and the public at large.

The schools of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning located within the DAAP complex have been consistently ranked in the top schools for Art and Design nationally and internationally. DAAP distinguishes itself with programs that integrate hard skills and theory that are put into practice through the cooperative education program pioneered by UC in 1906.

DAAPmade is a series of events organized by the DAAP Alumni Council. DAAPmade fosters connections between alumni of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning by creating opportunities to engage through creative industries in Greater Cincinnati and beyond.
