Bruce Mau is the Creative Director of Bruce Mau Design, based in Toronto, Canada. In 2003, he founded the Institute Without Boundaries, a twelve-month interdisciplinary postgraduate program that aims to produce a new breed of designer, one who is, “a synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist, and evolutionary strategist. “ Mau is an exemplar of creativity, and in his “Incomplete Manifesto for Growth” articulates his beliefs, motivations and strategies.

I hope you all are getting excited about our upcoming trip to Cleveland… There is going to be some really great work up, and shows that are quite appropriate to some topics covered in many of our classes (identity, mark-making, color and light…)
Please check out some of the exhibits and maybe start doing some background research on some of the artists. There a little something for everyone: photography, painting, textiles, video, glass, even music! Check it:
