Academy of Art Spring Show Blossoms With Talent


On Thursday, May 27, the Academy of Art University held its Annual Spring Show where students from the school's disciplines display their work. Held in San Francisco, creativity blossomed from every corner of the galleries for fellow students, art aficionados and recruiters to view.

From graphic design to industrial design to fashion to fine art to multimedia communications to photography to advertising, much of the work was truly amazing and of professional caliber. Walking through the exhibits, it was clear the school was matriculating and graduating some serious talent that this industry would behoove itself to take a look at.
