Visiting Chavón: The School of Design

I always try to make the most of every trip I take - visiting interesting places that inform and inspire me.

For this year's "spring break", my family and I traveled to the Caribbean nation of the Dominican Republic, known for its beautiful beaches, golf courses, and for its mountains - the highest in the Caribbean. The Dominican Republic is also a developing nation, and among the highlights of our trip was a visit to Santo Domingo’s Chavón: The School of Design, a university-level educational institution that has gained worldwide recognition for its innovative programs. Founded in 1983, with hopes of addressing the country's growing commercial and industrial demands, the School offers talented Dominican and foreign students the opportunity to prepare for careers in the fields of visual arts and design.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
