Academy of Art University's Annual Student Exhibition Goes Online

This year, the popular Spring Show event will be interactively displayed online to showcase the best of the best art and design work from Academy of Art University students, and to connect them with industry professionals, recruiters, and the community

Academy of Art University, a top art and design school in San Francisco, is proud to announce that its annual Spring Show event is officially live online and open to the public. For the first time in the school’s history, the Academy will hold this event 100% online.

Like in years past, the 2020 Spring Show features extraordinary art and design work from a highly diverse group of students, spanning more than 75 creative disciplines. From paintings and sculptures to fully developed video games and car models, there is no shortage of talent and skill on display.

This year’s event will also include virtual and interactive opportunities to continue the Academy’s long-standing tradition of connecting its students with leading companies across the globe such as Laika, Nissan, Tesla, Nike, Mattel, Louis Vuitton, Blue Sky Studios, Riot Games, Chronicle Books, and Blizzard.

“For many students, it’s [Spring Show] the culmination of years of hard work by extremely talented graduate and undergraduate students,” said Academy of Art University President Elisa Stephens. “The experience every year is truly unforgettable. And 2020 is no exception.” 

For the 2020 Spring Show, the goal of moving the event online was to still give students the platform and opportunity to network with recruiters from global companies and get their portfolios reviewed for feedback from industry experts via Zoom.

“The best thing about being a part of Spring Show is that you get to meet people from many different industries here. It’s all about connections. You get to talk with people. It’s a good way to create connections, and maybe like an internship or even a full-time job,” said An Nguyen, Product Designer at Facebook and Academy alum.

The 2020 Spring Show is now open to the public. Explore the best of the best student work and get more information at:
