Come Support Stoneman Douglas High Survivors

By now, most of us have heard about the horrific school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School that took place on February 14 in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people and injuring many more.

This week, officials from the high school requested posters and banners from people across the country to display on campus to show their staff, students, and community that there are good people out there who care about them.

At Academy of Art University, we are extremely proud of our student body, which represents dozens of countries, states, and cities across America.

Informed by our home in San Francisco, we aim to give back to others in the spirit of generosity and compassion.

Florida is home to many of our current and future students, and the Academy wants to help our students to show support for the survivors. So we’re sending your messages of love and support to them in the form of an Academy blanket – a quilt of love, if you will.

Send Your Thoughts and Support

So please stop by the lobby of 180 New Montgomery on Thursday, Feb. 22, from 9am-3pm to write a quick message, sketch some art, or just simply sign your name on the blanket. Let the people at the school know that their experience touched you, and that you care. We’ll send the blanket to the high school on Friday morning.

Feel free to spread the word and we look forward to seeing you there.
