Savannah College Isn’t Coming to Dallas, For Now

A FrontBurnervian reminded me of my bloggerly duties to follow up on stuff I post, and I’m glad she did. I wrote that the Savannah College of Art and Design might announce its Dallas location by the fall of 2008. A quick phone call to a source at the college today revealed that after the economy started to turn south, the college people put the plans on ice. Just figured I’d add a little bit more sunshine to your day. You’re welcome.

    Thanks, Tristan.

    Life is too short to come and live in Dallas.

    on ice forever? or just indefinitely until a foreseeable *rebound*

    Terribly disappointing. SCAD is exactly what the West End needs right now.

  5. Brian Barnaud says:

    or deep ellum for that matter

    Bum. Mer. SCAD is amazing. The restoration work they’ve done in Savannah is incredible. It gave me hope to know that SCAD could come to Dallas and revive Downtown/Deep Ellum. Luckily, ice thaws.

    Great, more expensive private schools that offer mostly programs without sold employment options. El Centro has a strong culinary program for less than 1/10th the cost of the Art Institute or that new chain off 635.

    SCAD is considered one of the best design schools in the nation, Mike – up there with Rhode Island School of Design. To have that in Dallas would be a major coup. Yeah, it is expensive but having something like SCAD in Dallas would bolster the work that Dallas is already doing in the arts and would mean more $$ poured into the Dallas economy … if times weren’t tough.
