This is a blog for the CCAD class of 1981 to come and get info and reconnect with old friends.
I interviewed with Canzani, Kinney and Frank Hoffelt for my position here at CCAD at the old Christopher Inn. When we were done with lunch and began talking about various other things Joe asked in his famous accent "So what do you think of the design in front of V-Hall (now Kinney Hall)?" Without thinking I frowned and said I thought "the color was insipid." At that moment Mary Kinney kicked me in the shin under the table, leaned towards me and told me "Joe designed that mural." I thought for sure I'd blown it. But I got hired anyway. I remember seeing Ron Tardino working on it. Back then Joe had all those guys doing stuff and it gets harder with time to remember who did what. But be sure that Joe claims creative credit for all of it.
YIKES! This blog is amazing, by the way.
