Academy and arts is the perfect combination. When you combine these two subjects, the potential for great things can truly happen. Have you ever heard of the Academy of Art University? Well, if you haven’t heard, then you’re not the only oddball. This prestigious institution is located in beautiful San Francisco, California, and it was founded by a guy named Richard Stephens. This school is just like any other university to some degree. On the other hand, this school excels in fashion and art. Its amazing urban-campus is in the heart of San Francisco, and it has some of the finest facilities that are state-of-the-art.
Every year, the Academy of Art University attends the affluent New York Fashion Week at Skylight Clarkson Square. Each and every year of attendance, it represents itself very well. Some of the greatest talent in arts and fashion can be found here during this time. This just so happens to be the school’s 21st runway showcase. Ten of its BFA and MFA graduates got a chance to publicize their projects under the brightest of lights. This would include two menswear lines as well as five womenswear lines. In addition to that, there were two dynamic-collaborations among the graduates. Bright- lights and the big city played its role perfectly as there were many famous faces in the crowd including Ms. J. Alexander from the hit show “America’s Next Top Model.” What more could you ever ask?
The Academy of Art University has produced talent that has went on to do big things. The Academy’s alumni has presented projects for motion pictures such as Sully, Hacksaw Ridge, Doctor Strange, 13 Hours, Fantastic Beats, Deepwater Horizon and Suicide Squad. As you can see, this school has definitely made a name for itself, but who knows what the future may hold in the years to come.
