SNC Day 2017 at the Bush Art Center

This year’s SNC Day was a smashing success all around, and the activities held at the Bush Art Center were no exception. Over 700 students, alumni, and community members visited the BAC to tour the galleries, make pennants to mirror Katie Ries’ piece “Pennants 2017” currently showing in the Art Faculty Triennial Exhibition, and earn their Observation badge with the Land Scouts—an organization started by Ries and focused on promoting good stewardship with the land around you.

Scroll down to see some photos from the day’s events and relive the fun right along with us.
