Interior Design Vernissage is June 6

May 23rd, 2024

As we embark on a new chapter, we are excited to welcome you to our 2024 Dawson College Interior Design Exhibition: a celebration of our creativity and passion for Interior Design!

Throughout our time at Dawson, we've navigated a program revision and the uncertainties of a post-COVID world, emerging as stronger professionals and more connected than ever before. Despite the turbulence of change, we've upheld a culture of adaptability, high performance, and unwavering support for one another.

In this exhibition, you will experience the embodiment of our hard work and determination. With diverse projects and innovative solutions, each project mirrors our commitment to excellence and collaboration. We invite you to immerse yourself in our work, share in our triumphs, and witness the bonds that unite us; a close-knit family of passionate designers.

The Interior Design 2024 Vernissage is Thursday, June 6 from 5 PM to 9 PM in 3C.1. The exhibition continues on Friday, June 7 from 9 AM to 4 PM in 3C.1.


Illustration Vernissage is May 29

May 23rd, 2024

Join us at the Illustration 2024 Vernissage, an exciting showcase of 36 emerging illustrators who have honed their skills and artistic voices over the past three years. It will be held on May 29th in 3C.1 from 5:30-10PM. This year’s event, inspired by the imaginative artwork of student Juliette Lafleur-Loughrey, transports us to a whimsical world where animal and popcorn-like stylish creatures vividly represent diversity and community.

This event is open to the public and the Exhibition will continue on May 30th from 12:- 9:00 p.m and May 31st from 12:00 - 7:00 p.m. The theme of inclusivity and imagination is brought to life not only through the artwork but also through the design of the event space, including engaging signage and interactive displays.

This vernissage is not only a celebration of our students’ artistic achievements but also an homage to the careers of Pauline Fresco and Meinert Hansen, two esteemed faculty members who are retiring after years of dedication and inspiration. This event also marks their last semester, making it a particularly poignant moment for us all.
