    Classes look a bit different this semester but @RIT_artdesign students are still discovering new artists and finding inspiration for their art at the library! Prof. Ahndraya Parlato's class explored our #photography books then shared what they found as class resumed outside. #RIT https://t.co/WkOaB3vkkN
