Cloyd Family Animation Center Campaign

This campaign ends on June 30 at 11:59PM EDT

Celebrate Animation!

Animation is getting a new home at Columbus College of Art & Design: the state-of-the-art Cloyd Family Animation Center. In the new facility, we want to celebrate faculty members past and present who have made CCAD a destination for Animation. Help us honor the contributions of Ron Saks, Charlotte Belland, Tom Richner, Andy Friz, and other faculty members by making a gift to the Cloyd Family Animation Center.  

This first-ever dedicated Animation space will be totally, unmistakably ours —
from the word “Animation” running boldly down the side of the building, to the dedicated gallery space that will greet visitors and students. For the first time, the Animation department will be able to host traveling shows, show off students’ thesis projects, and offer other complementary programming.

Plans for the space include a large drawing stage; a digital drawing studio that will allow students to dock their laptops and learn digital drawing techniques; a traditional 25-seat computer lab that will offer students the space they need to complete their work; and a 16-seat stop motion studio/classroom that will distinguish CCAD from other programs. The 16 individual bays with downward-facing cameras and lights will enable students to build stop motion puppetry and explore sand animation and clay — to truly experiment and push artistic boundaries.
