Art Prof 2020 Graduation: A Global Exhibition for Art & Design Students

The spring season is usually marked by important experiences such as final exhibitions, commencement, and more.

Many schools have either postponed or cancelled senior exhibitions.  This loss to graduating students is tremendous.
