No Way: Academy of Art University Students Get to Go On Field Trips?

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

(I haven’t been on a field-trip in donkey’s years.)

Wonder where the AoA stus were going to.

It was a wonderful adventure, I’m sure…

OMG, the 2011 Annual Spring Show Just Opened at the Academy of Art University at Van Ness and Washington

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Haven’t dropped by this year just yet ’cause the locale always seems to be uphill from wherever I am, but you, well, here are all the deets if you want to check things out.

Open House is on June 4, 2011 and the whole shebang ends on August 15th.

See you there!

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!
