Enhancing the teaching and research activities of the Department of Design, the UC Davis Design Museum explores how design shapes, improves and makes economically viable the objects, technology and environments we use, inhabit and experience every day.
The UC Davis Design Museum is a founding adopter of the Green Museums Accord. The Accord is a set of five principles that propel museums to become environmental leaders, and is administered by the California Association of Museums and the Green Museums Initiative.
Pete Scully is originally from London, UK, and has lived in Davis since late 2005, working at the Statistics Department of UC Davis since 2006 as graduate coordinator. Pete is an avid urban sketcher who draws the everyday world around him – streets, people, fire hydrants, all urban details – in ink line and watercolor wash, using his sketchbook to have a conversation with his environment. He draws to remember, in case he forgets.
