It’s bittersweet that our live gallery will come to end today. Although we would have loved to have celebrated in person, the memories we made during this process will hold a special place in each of our hearts. Our class went from losing hope to creating something worth while. Again thank you everyone who not only helped our vision come to life, but made history with us as well. This is class of 2020 signing off.. until next time 💙 #augmentUA20 #myersschoolofart #uadesign #enhancewithUA #classof2020UA
