ALIGNED: The Art of Design – Virtual Tour

A DAAP Faculty, Student, and Alumni Exhibition

At 1628, we believe there is no such thing as creating in a vacuum. Art cannot be made without influence by its surroundings, and when you are in an art institution, you are influenced by the work others are creating around you. DAAP is a building dedicated to design thinking, where aesthetics are seen as a solution to creative problems. The art school is housed in a building devoted to design, creating an aesthetic of art unique to its students. 

“As an avid and long-time supporter of the arts, as well as being a University of Cincinnati graduate, I am pleased to be hosting these 16 artists to celebrate the artwork of my alma mater. These artists have a wide breadth of styles that shine a light on the diversity of work developed by artists from DAAP.” -Tamara Schwarting, CEO and Founder, 1628 Ltd.
