Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) is a private, non-profit four-year and post-graduate college specializing in the visual arts. Located in the Whittier neighborhood of Minneapolis, MCAD enrolls roughly 750 fine art and design students to engage in areas such as illustration, graphic design, sculpture, furniture design and liberal arts study. MCAD is one of the few major art institutions to offer a major in Comic Art. Founded in 1886, the College was originally called the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts and the first class contained 28 students, 26 of which were women. In 1910, the School of Fine Arts changed its name to the Minneapolis School of Art and moved to its present location in 1914. In 1970, the School became the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
