Illustration I students pitched mural proposals to the librarians and Director at the Lloyd Library and Museum this week.  One of their proposals will be picked, and the whole class will paint the mural on location.  More in-class, client-based, real world experience!  The AAC has strong historical ties with the Lloyd Library, and we’re always thrilled to collaborate with them on projects.
