We've always got something new cooking at Moore. Here are some of the latest College-wide projects.
INTRODUCING OUR DIGITAL VIEWBOOK
Our annual viewbook publication, traditionally created as a print document, has shifted to an eco-friendly, more interactive digital format in 2023! The digital viewbook is chock full of information for students and families interested in learning about Moore. You might even find some hidden Easter eggs throughout the site.

NEW CAMPUS SPACES: THE VAULT & FILM STUDIO
Short for "Visual Arts Underground for Learning Technologies," the VAULT opened in fall 2022 after months and construction and renovation work. For the first time ever, Wilson and Sarah Peter Halls are now connected on Moore's lower level via a physical walkway, along with a new student lounge located between buildings.
The VAULT features all-new digital spaces such as an animation studio, editing bays, computer labs, a dual monitor lab and stop-motion studio, plus a gaming lounge for students to gather and play or show off their work. These digital spaces are useful for students in a range of majors, including Animation & Game Arts, Interior Design, Illustration, Graphic Design, and more. Spacious Fine Arts classrooms and studios for sculpture, ceramics, plaster, as well as a kiln room and glaze room, also feature multiple dedicated spaces for artwork display.
Our state-of-the-art Film Studio, located in Graham Auditorium, is a new space dedicated to students in our Film & Digital Cinema program. Equipped with various types of lighting, a cyclorama curtain, green screen, sound board, flat-screen TV, cameras and essential classroom resources, Film & Digital Cinema students have the tools and resources they need to bring their creative visions to life.
Both spaces represent a major investment in Moore's students and their futures, thanks to facilities and equipment that allow us to meet the evolving needs of their future industries and to better prepare them for career success.

UNIQUE EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
Moore is the only art and design school that provides a $1,000 paid internship to ALL students between their junior and senior years. In 2023, our Locks Career Center has expanded and broadened our internship initiative with the Unique Experiential Learning Opportunity (UELO) program, which provides a tailored, project-based experience for students as an alternative to a traditional internship experience.
Participating students submit a proposal to be considered for a UELO. Those who are chosen work with a professional mentor and develop a one-on-one relationship that will be useful for years to come. Networking opportunities and skill-building help students envision what it means to be a working artist or designer, alongside lots of creative exploration and discovery.
"I got to meet so many wonderful people who inspired me to try new things in my photography," says Luna Wroblewski '24, Photography, who spent summer 2023 in Japan for her UELO, researching traditional Japanese arts. "Being in Japan gave me insight into another culture that I wouldn’t have experienced in the United States."

OUR NEW BRAND
Interested in Moore's new brand and how we got here? It's all about creative impact and what it takes to be a leader in a creative field. Our new look, created in collaboration with Creative Communications Associates, revolves around our new logo, memorable for its bright color palette and overlapping circles, and the dynamic Utile font, created by a female font designer, Sibylle Hagmann, for her creative studio, Kontour. Watch our brand video above to learn about the behind-the-scenes process and meaning behind our new logo.
