Alum Norman Teague (MFA 2016) was recently spotlighted in T Magazine. The article covers Teague’s inspirations, future endeavors, and his time at SAIC. “It was a big deal to go from student to exhibitor,” Teague shared about his Sinmi stool earning a place in the Art Institute of Chicago’s permanent collection.
