They have buses too, of course.

The sidewalks of SoMA couldn’t handle all of these Academy of Art University students in SoMA after a recent fire alarm – they were everywhere.

Anyway, I didn’t realize how many art students San Francisco has these days…

Yay, It’s the New “Atelier” (That Rhymes, BTW) from the Academy of Art University on New Montgomery

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

All right, first up:

An atelier is an artist’s studio or workroom.”

O.K. then.

Now, the news of the day is our Academy of Art University opening up some retail space 79 New Monty in the SoMA:

“We’re pleased to announce the opening of the Academy of Art University Atelier – a unique retail gallery space dedicated to showcasing the creative work of our students and alumni, where all profits will benefit the University’s Student Scholarship Fund.”

And best of all, it’s “ultra-curated,” baby. Per Carolyne Zinko and/or Cindy Ha, this new AAU joint:

“…showcases students’ work, including home decor, art, clothes for men, women and children, and jewelry. A few faculty and alumni, such as Gr.dano, are also included.”

Everybody on the scene is young, thin, and attractive so of course I fit right in. (And they looooove wearing black (lots and lots and lots of black), just like me!)

And everything you see here is on sale:

Bon courage, AoA Atelier!
