SNAG is seeking partners in co-producing and/or supporting exhibitions that advance SNAG’s mission to educate audiences about the historical, artistic and cultural importance of jewelry, metalwork and design. The exhibition partners program has up to $2,500 for support of one proposed exhibition for 2013 with an application deadline for proposals of October 15th 2012. In 2012, this award helped support the exhibition, Transformation 8: Contemporary Works in Small Metals (Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize series), at the Society for Contemporary Craft. More information and guidelines for applying are located on SNAG’s Exhibitions page.
I have a strong desire to be of service and I saw an opportunity to help that could be mutually beneficial. My “former life” could be of service to a fairly large organization and that interested me. I would now be able to meet some of my jewelry heroes and make a difference at the same time.
