As we look toward 2020, we want to take a moment to celebrate some of our favorite SAIC alumni moments of 2019. From meeting alums in Austin, Mumbai, New York, or here in Chicago, to gathering with alums for the first time in the Rocky Mountain region, it is clear that SAIC's impact can be felt around the world. As we experienced your studios, exhibitions, lectures, and performances, we were awed by how SAIC alums are affecting and changing the world as citizen artists. We remain impressed by you, SAIC’s thriving community of alums, and we can’t wait to see what you do in 2020.
We look forward to seeing you on campus February 13–15 for SAIC Alumni Reunion.
