“The first time I walked through the doors of the Art Academy, I knew I was home. Today, it is a great privilege for me to serve as President of the AAC Alumni Council, and I hope to make the Art Academy a home base of support, camaraderie, and inspiration for all our Alums—both near and far. In the coming year, we are planning new ways for our alumni community to re-engage with Art Academy and with one another. We envision an Alumni Council that connects, promotes, and supplies opportunities for all. We want to hear from you, and more importantly, we want you to know that you will always have a home here in Cincinnati. Stay tuned, be well, and make art!”
