In the Spring of 2009 I felt that we needed to celebrate the arts at my school where energy was so heavily focused on testing. We called that celebration Why Art Matters or WAM (week). I designed this week to include a student juried gallery of student work. We even had some school staff artwork! I offered classes to the staff a few times and it was a great release for all involved.
The WAM week included a visiting artist day with a chef, Slang, a comic book artist, a poet and composer, and a couple of my friends from the web graphics industry.
