Introducing GLRY ADV!!!

Welcome back AAU ADV!!! Hope everyone’s first two weeks have been enjoyable so far and you’re learning more and more about this great industry of ours.

We’ve installed something new for you in the ADV department located at 410 Bush Street this semester; some of you may have noticed our GLRY ADV installed just outside of Andrea’s office and as soon as you step off of the elevator on the 3rd floor.

The gallery is designed to feature the other side of your creativity, be it photography, painting, illustration or other ways of expressing yourself. So be you art director, copywriter or strategist, here’s your chance to show off your stuff and inspire others to do the same.

Our featured student for our opening is Art Director Phillip Dorsett Jr. @therealphil who’s sharing his incredible eye for architectural photography through his use of angle, depth and scale.

For your chance to be featured, please submit samples of your work to tjones@academyart.edu and if chosen we will then supply you with all the dates and details.

We’re looking forward to seeing all your amazing talents displayed throughout the year, so let’s get those submissions flowing!!!
