DEPARTURE DAY

2nd Annual Material Topics Symposium

This will be the official website to get updates and information regarding this year’s event!

This fabulous poster designed by Abigail Heuss is the first of many exciting things to come! The image was inspired by where it all begins- the bench.

We hope you are looking forward to participating in this intercollegiate conference. Our theme for 2011 is Shifting Tradition.  A title we hope will encourage a diverse dialogue among everyone.

Following in the tradition of last year’s symposium we will be conducting workshops, panel discussions, critiques, and student exhibitions. There will also be new events and opportunities for students this year, such as the Sketchbook Exhibition/publication. There will be more details regarding this to come!

We are very excited to host this event for the second time and hope to have as many or more participants as last year. Keep your eyes peeled for more news and information.
