From reconnecting and celebrating at the Sullivan Galleries to exploring creative practices, this year's Alumni Reunion was a dynamic re-immersion into SAIC.

Alums visited with professors, explored the ever-changing campus, and gathered in a classroom once again for a monoprinting workshop. They experienced performance, heard from visiting artists, and viewed work by current students. On the final day of reunion, alums celebrated each others’ stories at the PechaKucha, where each presentation was different, compelling, and highlighted the diverse creative practices of our vibrant alumni community.

Enjoy these highlights from SAIC's 2020 Alumni Reunion! Tag yourselves!

Art We There Yet?

Shout out to José Luis Vílchez (BFA 2015) and Cora Rose Lewicki on their first collaborative mural painted at Tanglewood Middle School in Greenville, South Carolina!

Follow along with their initiative at Art We There Yet? #SAICalumni #ArtWeThereYet

The first Art We There Yet mural was painted at Tanglewood Middle School in Greenville, South Carolina, USA. It was a beautiful experience and the perfect beginning to the journey.

The kids participated in painting the mural, making it their own and deepening their sense of ownership and pride in their school community. In turn, their enthusiasm inspired us and re-affirmed why we are doing this project. We are so very proud of you all!

Art We There Yet murals are provided at no cost to schools and communities experiencing a lack of arts funding. To help us bridge this gap and sponsor a mural, visit: http://artwethereyet.com/blog/store/Sponsor-A-Mural-p159004432 ❤️🌎❤️
