SNDLOU: A glance at Day 1

Sessions

Today is all about the students at SNDU, who will hear from Steve Dorsey, Seth Gitner, and Larry Buchanan before portfolio critiques, and the Graphics Garage. For tonight’s opening reception at the Kentucky Derby Museum, shuttles will constantly run from the Galt House Hotel from 3 – 7 p.m. The reception officially starts at 6 p.m., but the last horse race is at 5:10, so head out early to place your bets.
