Communication Arts + Design frequented the KAA Design Art Exhibit & Sale.  We enjoyed a wonderful evening filled with friends, food, and artistic expression including paintings, photography, jewelry, and culinary delights.  The event was presented in partnership with artworxLA, with proceeds benefiting the organization, which works to combat Los Angeles’ high school dropout crisis through arts education.
