As you consider heading to Pittsburgh for CrossCurrents: Clay and Culture, NCECA’s 52nd conference, please help us to identify those individuals who have brought the culture of clay to where it is today. Our community has the opportunity and responsibility to honor, recognize and acknowledge individuals in the field who have made incredible contributions. These are folks who have left a lasting impact and legacy with their work, service, teaching/mentorship or outstanding projects. We all know someone who has contributed in ways that change the way we see and think and left an impact that surpasses the walls of their studios to our great collective benefit. We want to celebrate these individuals and we need your help in the process. We will have programming at the 52nd conference in Pittsburgh to celebrate the 2018 Honors and Awardees.
It is a moment to hear about our award winners and their contributions to our shared discipline. Please consider submitting a nomination packet for those you think are especially deserving of these prestigious awards and allow our community the occasion to recognize and celebrate their legacy. Go here to find out more specifics on the list of NCECA Awards. Nominations are still being accepted and online submissions will close on November 1, 2017, so nominate now. As always, please contact me if you have any questions at all about the Honors and Awards at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
