CAP 50th Graphic Design Competition

CAP 50th Anniversary Graphic Design Competition

In 2015, the College of Architecture and Planning will celebrate 50 years of history. We will begin celebrating this milestone anniversary in August 2014 with the installation of a 60' x 10' commemorative banner on the south facing facade of the CAP building.  The banner will underline the beginning of CAP's 50th events and activities.
