Academy Weekly: The Calm Before the Storm Before Summer

Last week was relatively calm, wouldn’t you say? The spring semester’s over, we’re segueing into summer, and we’re all very much ready to be out and about again once the shelter-in lifts for good. 

And then the weekend happened, and, well, we all now know how that storm turned out. BUT! It is a brand new month, and with it, we fervently hope, a brand new day of healing—not just of literal viruses but also the figurative but even more destructive ones hiding in plain sight.

And it’s June, which means it’s Pride month! We’re one in celebrating with the LGBTQ+ community, both within our very own art school community, and beyond. We’ll be shining a spotlight on them throughout this month, so stay tuned for that.

Meanwhile, don’t miss out on these cool posts we shared last week, as well as the upcoming events this week:

The Art Bundle

In this edition of The Art Bundle, we take a look back at our posts from the month of March, all themed and tied up for your pleasure reading. March was Women’s History Month, so of course you’ll find plenty of features on women in this bundle. Enjoy!

 You’re all caught up! Until the next Academy Weekly, that is. Keep it posted here for more fun stuff.
