"We must, because even in this uncertain time, our values endure.

We are still artists, designers, and scholars.

The ways we picture, interrogate, and shape our shared society will always be fundamental elements of the human experience.

The images we make, environments we build, and ways of being we envision will be essential throughout this health crisis and beyond."

____ Elissa Tenny

President of School of the Art Institute of Chicago
