Last semester the CCAD Honors Program created a pop-up store in the Beaton Gallery called ONE. Created as a curated shopping experience in one store, for one day, offering only one chance for the public to acquire unique works, the students in the course created tremendous anticipation and the store was wildly successful.
ONE was so successful that it’s happening again – this semester’s project, being run through a CCAD Special Topics Retail Course taught by Marcia Tabler, is focused on the branding, designing and merchandising to launch another pop-up store called FORTHMADE at Easton Town Center, a premium mixed-use shopping district located in northeast Columbus, on Saturday, May 4th.
While the course features students from six different majors, as a pop-up store FORTHMADE is intent on showcasing select work from all majors at CCAD. The goal is to have 1000 pieces of CCAD student art in the store! The deadline to apply is Friday, March 29th, 2013.
