The Mission of the Academy of Art University

Academy of Art University NYFW show, talks about the 21st runway showcase on September 9, 2017, organized by the Academy of Art University. The runway showcase provided students the opportunity to show off their latest works to current and potential mentors, friends, family, and the entire world. This year, ten very diverse MFA and BFA students received that opportunity to present their vision on the future of fashion.
This is just one of the many ways that the Academy of Art University helps their students achieve their goals. The Academy of Art University has been helping students since it was first established in 1929, in the City of San Francisco. Their mission is that the, “Academy of Art University prepares aspiring professionals in the fields of design, communication, and the arts by delivering excellent undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificate and portfolio development programs.” This mission has been repeatedly upheld by the university.
The Academy of Art University holds over 70+ student and alumni art shows and exhibits throughout San Francisco. Through these various opportunities, the Academy of Art university has helped students, such as Whitney Martin who graduated in ‘95 and became a storyboard artist on the hit series, King of the Hill. Diego Galtieri, graduated in ‘03 and won an Emmy for his work on the show, Heroes. These are just a couple of students that have managed to hit their goal with the help of the Academy of Art University.
The opportunities provided are available to any aspiring student/professional. The Academy of Art’s belief in “no barrier admission” has allowed them to gather a diverse body of students and alumni; the school’s population represents over 112 countries. As long as you are an aspiring student/professional then you can take advantage of the various undergraduate and graduate degree programs being offered. As the university continues to uphold its mission statement, we will continue to see more students share their work in various showcases and exhibit, thus allowing them to reach their goals and dreams.
