SU: Alumni

Pablo Picasso once said, ‘All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he [or she] grows up.’

We are always here for our SU: Alumni!

SU:Alumni embody the spirit that this exhibition was founded for – young, creative minds ready to work hard to chase their dreams. Our Alumni page lists the creative minds who have stayed in touch with us.
