College of Art & Design is an independent, nonprofit organization offering baccalaureates for women and co-educational degrees at the graduate level. Founded in 1848, Moore was the first women’s art school in the nation. The college features a Writer’s Studio, exhibition opportunities in the school’s five professional galleries and Student Run Gallery, the Penny and Bob Fox Digital Center for Digital Arts, and an Art Shop where students can sell their work. The Moore campus also hosts the Locks Career Center, a lifelong professional resource for all students and alumnae.
Moore is special to me because of the environment, location, and positive message. The environment is very joyful, while the location is well-relaxed, and inspiring. The positive message on women empowerment is by far, my favorite thing about Moore's existence.
