ANOTHER REASON WE LOVE TARGET

American Architectural Foundation (<span class=
Did you know that Target partners with museums and design schools to make art more affordable and accessible. Target is also the national sponsor of the American Architectural Foundation’s (AAF) Great Schools by Design program. The goal of the program is to improve the quality of our country’s schools and the communities they serve by promoting collaboration, excellence and innovation in school design. With AAF, Target launched Redesign Your School, the largest national design competition open to high school students in the country.
After all, great design is more than aesthetic and style; it's about promoting creativity and innovation that leads to extraordinary experiences both in your home and in your life. Sounds like Target & OPaL are on the same page.
