CACA UK Visits: Boom For Real

His dream was to work with Andy Warhol, the art superstar was at the height of his fame, and indeed they did end up collaborating on many projects and exhibitions.

CACA UK had the pleasure of visiting SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design) in Georgia, USA.

Savannah is a beautiful place to study, an old town dating from 1733, SCAD sits in the heart of the city close to the main park and on one of it’s iconic squares.

The Spanish moss on the trees add a fairy-tail feel to the area here in the South of the US. The elegant main building is a showcase for students’ work and the college has fabulous facilities across the city.
