The Adventures Inside the Academy of Art University

If you are looking for just the right college or University to pursue your artistic path then the Academy of Art University might just be the place for you. The University is constantly on the look out for great talents, from fashion enthusiasts to graphic designers. It was created to assist those who took their talents very seriously. In due time they can become the professionals they had always dreamed to be. From all the work and passion to graduate, graduates were known to be hired by huge companies and film and gaming studios.

The Academy of Art University has been holding its annual runway showcase which captured media attention during the past month. Displaying full fledged designs of men and women’s clothing to all the world must have been a proud day for passionate students, collaborations among them. It is more than just a mere spectacle, but something to be eternally proud of for these students. Settled in San Fransisco it is a privately owned school for profit founded by Richard S. Stephens back in 1929. It has been kept alive for all of these years and generations past.

This University is unlike any other, having inspired countless young artists to follow their dreams. Art comes in many shapes and mediums, from the graphic arts to modern works. There are fashion designers and immature animators hoping to become pure professionals. The featured students at this showcase had come from different walks of life from all around the world. Not one was hindered in their path during their journey towards success. Audiences see the love and passion they place into each of their works. Fashion designers have blossomed from the classrooms and lectures of the Academy of Art University.

Students made what was best for themselves while at the same they were able to keep what they love to do close to home. This place is one of the best out there to get started. All one needs is a delicately organized portfolio of personal works in order to begin. That day will come when that offer will come.

Bruce Levenson Looks To Educate The Not For Profit Community

The not for profit sector of the U.S. community has been seeking to gain more of a foothold in the world of business in recent years, but UCG co-founder and philanthropist Bruce Levenson believes the problem facing many not for profit leaders is the gap in their business skills. Levenson admires the passion of philanthropists and not for profit leaders, but believes their peers in the private sector are often better equipped to achieve long term success because of the standard of education they receive.

In a bid to close the gap between the not for profit and private sectors the man behind the TechTarget and Gas Buddy brands has thrown his considerable financial weight behind the development of the Do Good Institute at The University of Maryland. Bruce Levenson has been involved in the work of the Do Good Institute since its inception and according to PR News, seeded $75 million in funds to The University of Maryland to help develop the institute and establish it in a position that has seen it become a great success from the first day of its launch in 2010. Bruce Levenson hopes the Do Good Institute will be the first step in hands on approach to not for profit education that should begin to be seen across the U.S. after the success shown in the first few years of operation for the Do Good Institute.

After developing UCG in a spare room as a standalone newsletter in the 1970s, Bruce Levenson and business partner Ed Peskowitz set out to develop the company as a leader in the delivery of information that has moved with the latest technology. In 2004, Bruce Levenson headed a consortium that purchased the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise, taking the team from last place in the standings to the number one seed entering the 2015 playoffs before selling the franchise for an estimated $840 million. http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/11493472/jason-whitlock-bruce-levenson-atlanta-hawks
