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.
The UC Davis Design Museum explores racism through cartoons in
the installation “STILL: Racism in America, A Retrospective in
Cartoons.” Showcasing the work of pioneering father/daughter
cartoonists the late Brumsic Brandon, Jr. and Barbara
Brandon-Croft, the exhibition runs Jan. 23 through April 21,
“Mooving Forward: the Undergraduate Senior
Showcase” highlights the breadth, talent, and diversity
of the Department of Design, as shown through the outstanding
course work produced over the past year by senior undergraduate
students. The installation runs May 15 through June 18 at the UC
Davis Design Museum.
