ANDERSON GALLERY

Drake Art and Design Alumni Impact

This virtual show will feature Drake Art and Design Alumns who are actively creating and making an impact in their communities. The gallery will feature one artist per week and spolight their projects and create a virtual artist talk. More dates and links to come!

All talks can be found on the Anderson Gallery Facebook page and YouTube page. They are archived on YouTube, so you don't have to watch live.
