Early last month I had applied to the Craft Alliance to join the group for an educational mission to the Sculptural Objects & Functional Art show (SOFA) in Chicago in November. I'm heading out today to attend!
"Craft Alliance is engaging the services of a marketing & public relations consultant in the Chicago area to coordinate the educational mission program. The full day workshop will take place Thursday, November 1st at the SOFA venue. A full day of expert guest speakers will be on hand to discuss topics relating to SOFA and the sale and exhibition of contemproary craft.
Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in the SOFA Lecture Series on Friday, November 2nd, visit galleries in the Chicago area, tour the SOFA exhibition and participate in other SOFA related events during the weekend. SOFA hosts an extensive lecture series throughout the event, which participants will be able to attend." Craft Alliance
