The SNAG Links Project was originally conceived of and coordinated by Linda Kaye-Moses in the 1990s. Linda invited 12 artists to create a link (a pendant-like adornment) utilizing their unique skill-sets.
Victoria Lansford revived the project in 2015/2016. Some of the links are available for purchase through our newest online exhibition. A portion of the proceeds benefit SNAG.
Each artist also contributed a chapter to the ebooks Linking Our Lineage, also available for purchase. Proceeds benefit SNAG.
