About AIGA Field Trips: As part of our efforts to get to know our members better and create new connections among each other we attend different events as an AIGA group. Film festivals, exhibitions, lectures, conferences, tours, hikes—we go together. Because together is better. Maybe one day we will even bring in a bus, chaperones, and lunch bags. Let’s explore!
