MAP installation at SFAI Alumni event Saturday Oct. 19th!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the SFAI alumni event on Saturday Oct. 19th and participated in our Mobile Vespa Screen Printing cart project in the courtyard of the Chestnut Street Campus. People created amazing free interactive take away posters voicing their opinions about their communities. For this project we collaborated with SFAI Professor Art Hazelwood and two of his students, Francisco Lopez and Alex Hernandez.

Here are a few pics of our installation:
