The Last Art College

Garry Neill Kennedy, The Last Art College: Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, 1968-1978 (MIT, 2012)

More Canadian goodness. This is one of many great books that my brilliant friend Eddie has been telling me about. A new, very impressive history of NSCAD in Halifax in the seventies, my new preferred time machine destination.


  1. Let me know if there's a free seat in that time machine! Superb stuff.

  2. It's a tremendous book, generously illustrated, and with a fantastic, almost week-by-week, timeline of the events going on at NSCAD during that time. I was in Halifax in the late 80s/early 90s, so experienced just a little of the afterglow of the glory days...

  3. Cool, yeah the book does seem like the labor of love. The college sounds great, like Black Mountain College North.
