Or visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home and Studio in Oak Park, IL. If you’ve seen Fallingwater or Taliesin West at previous conferences, this is another feather for your cap.
The mid-western tall grass prairie is an American ecological icon and treasure, which has mostly vanished. Tour a wild and precious remnant at Somme Prairie Grove, (www.sommepreserve.org) just minutes away from CBG.
Returning to our hotel, don’t forget new opportunities await at this year’s Silent Auction. We’ve have some very special additions you won’t want to miss. The Silent Auction supports ASBA’s Artists and Education Grants and ASBA’s Journal The Botanical Artist.
The banquet is followed by our Annual Awards presentation, which recognizes the contributions to art and service to the ASBA by our members. Truly, the awards represent the best in meeting the goals of the ASBA.
We have expanded the Educators’ Forum to a full day, on Sunday October 21st, ending at 3 PM. The exciting agenda will be included in June’s Journal. Take advantage of the speakers and discussion groups, and have time to meet fellow teachers and exchange ideas. A must for all ASBA Educators!
Have we whetted your appetite? Join us at the 2012 Chicago Conference, where art connects science to people – and all that jazz!
The full schedule of conference activities and registration materials will be in the June Journal and will be available to view online shortly before registration begins. Check your emails for updates on registration online, at www.asba-conf.org.
Every effort has been made to provide many opportunities for learning, but workshops fill up fast, so sign up immediately to avoid disappointment.
