Changes to the School of Art's Website, Social Media, and Newsletter

In the coming weeks, you will see some changes to the School of Art's communication platforms — this newsletter, our website, and our social media platforms — to focus on the creative solutions that our community is developing in this unprecedented time. Some content may be more lighthearted, such as all the "studiomate" photos above that our community shared with us for our Instagram stories, and some content may be more honest about the struggles we're facing. We hope you will continue to follow us here and on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

We want to hear from you! Are you organizing an online exhibition in lieu of a scheduled gallery show? Are you using this time explore a new medium or learn a new skill? Send your thoughts, ideas, and feedback to
