It seems just yesterday we mounted an incredible Spring Show 2016, with the usual impressive caliber of award-winning student work. Photography's industry guests included newcomers Eirik Johnson, Jonathan Blaustein, and Alyssa Coppelman. We were grateful for their insightful reviews of selected student portfolios.
During the summer semester, Academy students from more than five departments -- photography included -- studied drawing, painting, photography, art history and architecture in Florence, Italy. Students outlasted the Tuscan heat and pulled off a stunning final show -- stay tuned for a second exhibition of participating students' work at 688 Sutter Gallery, coming in late November.
Meanwhile, Academy of Art joins the photographic community in saying goodby to Brooks Institute, which announced this month it will shut its doors for good. A number of Brooks students have been granted the opportunity to complete their Brooks degree here at the Academy. Let's make them feel welcome.
As Fall Semester 2016 commences, we'll profile the summer's events in detail with an eye towards the future fun. For all the latest news and insights, subscribe to AAU Lens now.
