Academy of Art University Students Build International Friendships at 16th Annual Lily Project
Every year, Academy of Art University hosts students from the Lily Bunka Academy of Art in Mito,
Japan for an exciting intercontinental event. Twelve teams made up of Lily Bunka and Academy of Art
University students spent the day designing and constructing a box to represent hope and friendship
in this cross-cultural competition.
The following day, the teams presented their projects at sunny Stern Grove Park. The winners
of the competition were announced and lucky first place winners of the competition won iPods.
Although there may have been a language barrier, the students from both schools connected with each
other and formed friendships to last a lifetime!
