I hope Jeff Smith is on the list! I wonder how many of the people exhibiting went to CCAD (that’s where I went!) it’d be cool for the school to get a little publicity since over half the people I met while I attended didn’t even realize there was an art college in the city (even though we had a giant ‘ART’ sculpture you could see from the surrounding streets)

Kat, I’m sure Jeff is on the list, as hundreds of his original BONE pages are on deposit at the Library. His connection to CCAD is a bit of a stretch, as he left there to go to Ohio State. I know that Tony Cochran, creator of Agnes, also attended CCAD, but I don’t believe he finished there either.
