folk art society of america's symposium to be held in DC

All you visionaries and outside artists will want to mark your calendars for September 25 - 28, 2008 where you can join Shauna Lee Lange Arts Advisory in celebrating the Folk Art Society of America's 21st Annual Conference in Washington, DC. The theme of this year's symposia will be Folk Art in our Nation's Capital. Highlights include guest speakers, day tours, and a benefit auction. Auction proceeds donated to the Hemphill Jr. Memorial Art Fund contributes to the purchase of an art work each year for donation to a museum or university. The auction is the Society’s only yearly fund-raising event; its success depends on generous contributions and wide participation.
