Academy of Art’s Best of the Best: The Spring Show Showcase

by Mariebelle Alagbate

This year’s Spring Show, hosted online, gives you plenty of inspiration and zero excuses to check out Academy of Art University’s Best of the Best. Here are four students with their art portfolio, in case you need any more convincing.

For Academy of Art students, the Spring Show is a big deal. This is this the biggest showcase of all their hard work throughout their Academy life, it is also the most effective career-building opportunity for them before official graduating.

Traditionally, the Spring is staged for an entire month in an exhibit, where industry insiders, company representatives, and job recruiters get first row access to students’ projects, portfolios, and résumés. However, because of the enormous and unfortunate hiccup that is the pandemic, the Academy has had to come up with a new plan to save the Spring Show.

And they did! The solution: take it all online!

Now, the entire show is available on the official Spring Show website, accessibly by anyone and anybody for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, no matter where they may be. That’s a silver lining we don’t mind taking out of all this.

And now without further ado, we would like to introduce you to four Academy of Art students, proudly showing off their creations at the ongoing Spring Show. Don’t miss out on the rest of the best by visiting the Spring Show website.
