2013 Annual Report and 2014 Calendar

In 2013, KUER asked local artists to design our new hoodie with the following prompt: What does KUER mean to you? We received so many incredible designs that we decided to feature the runners-up in our 2013 annual report. With this 2013 annual report, you will see the designs featured on each month of the calendar followed with a quote from the artist.  Click here for the 2013 Annual Report.
