“D-Crit” is not Chip Kidd‘s D.J. name. It’s the School of Visual Arts’s new MFA in Design Criticism program, the first graduate-level degree program dedicated to critical writing about design in the United States. Tomorrow is your chance to learn all about the two-year program (and catch a glimpse of the man himself on the final day of Steven Heller Week) at an open house for the program that runs from 2:00-4:00pm at SVA (133 West 21st Street). This is the first in a series of events anticipating the D-Crit program’s inauguration next fall. A Design Criticism Reading Series at the KGB Bar kicks off on November 29, and this spring, look for a panel discussion on the future of design criticism.
