Formerly the Lacoste School of the Arts, which was founded in 1970 by American painter Bernard Pfriem, SCAD Lacoste was founded in 2002 when the School donated its 31 historic buildings to the university in exchange for its commitment to make substantial investments in their renovation and restoration. SCAD Lacoste offers a year-round academic curriculum, as well as other programs and workshops for students, faculty, visiting artists and the general public. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary in 2012, SCAD Lacoste hosts a series of public programs and exhibitions for students and the local and regional communities. Students also exhibit their work at the end of each quarter.Featured public programs also include exhibitions and workshops by acclaimed artists and the annual Sidewalk Arts Festival in the village of Lacoste.
