The annual San Diego AIGA LINK Art Show gives the students the opportunity to share their work with the community. Throughout the year, LINK students attended 10 workshops at Space4Art on Saturday mornings taught working creative including comic books with Eric Johnson and Joel Gomez, typography with Dane Danner and a visit to ArtProduce with Lynn Susholtz
“The students were really impressed when they walked in the gallery and saw their work hanging,” said LINK Director Karen Morrison. “This year the work was presented according to workshop. Katherine Yee of the Museum of Man created panels that explained each workshop. That context helped give people a greater understanding of the LINK program.”

LINK is an AIGA San Diego program that connects teens in need with artists and creative professionals, encouraging expression, creativity and self-esteem through innovative workshops and educational scholarships. LINK is made possible through the generosity of the The Richard and Jean Coyne Family Foundation in an effort to increase diversity in the field of visual communications. Last year, over $5,000 in college scholarships was awarded to deserving graduating students in the AIGA San Diego LINK program.
