Bravo Alumni - October 2017

PNCA alumni do amazing things. You launch new projects investigating the intersection between humor and contemporary art. You believe so strongly that art and design can make a difference that you set up a website to connect designers to opportunities and organizations with missions you can get behind. You're brave and bold enough to put your work in front of strangers. And you're making waves every day in your communities and across the country.
