Dear COMD Graphic Design students, on 4/24 during Spring Break you have a wonderful opportunity to share your Portfolio with professionals in the field. 

It is a casual setting where you can pop-in/out at any point between the event time to get their work reviewed. You just need to RSVP using the link below:


Adobe is particularly interesting in seeing the portfolios of COMD students focused on graphic design but if advertising and web design mixed into your portfolio is fine also. 

Please take advantage of this opportunity. If you are a junior or a senior, it will be most helpful to you for honing your portfolio for internships or first jobs upon graduation. If you have taken COMD 2400 and have your sophomore portfolio review ready, it is a great opportunity to get feedback on your work as you head into you upper level classes.

Networking Event on 4/15 from 5 PM to 7 PM: Opening Reception of the Exhibit “Drawings from Joe’s Pub” at the Public Theatre

The Public Theater presents Drawings From Joe’s Pub by Joan Chiverton

Public Opening Reception April 15th, the balcony gallery of the Public Theater 5-7 pm, 425 Lafayette St, New York, NY 

Joan Chiverton is a New York City-based illustrator, painter, and educator, whose work has been widely exhibited and has appeared in the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

This exhibition is a celebration of Joe’s Pub’s 25th anniversary season and the many, multidisciplinary collaborations that make the magic possible in our “jewel box of a room” every evening.
