The 2017 Halstead Design Challenge “Memento” asked artists to incorporate a photo into a brooch constructed primarily from materials in the Halstead challenge kit. Only 200 challenge kits were available. A juried selection from all entries was exhibited at the SNAG New Orleans Conference in May 2017. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who participated!

Join us in New Orleans this week, May 24-27, 2017!
Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” New Orleans is known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene, and exceptional cuisine. A melting pot of French, African, and American cultures, it is one of the country’s most culturally and historically-rich cities. Its beauty, mystery and continuous regeneration is the perfect backdrop and inspiration for SNAG’s 46th conference, “Nexus: A Connection of Ideas.”
“Nexus: A Connection of Ideas” will focus on motivating thinkers, collectors, and makers to bring new and old, materials, techniques, and ideas together in a true New Orleans celebration.
