Over 4,000 artists, art historians, curators, critics, designers, librarians, academic representatives, students, and professionals in the visual arts, have started pouring into Los Angeles for the College Art Association's (CAA) 106th Annual Conference, happening February 21-24 at the L.A. Convention Center.
CAA is a vital organization empowering visual arts educators, practitioners, and higher education institutions. The conference is a chance for colleagues to connect on important issues, share information, and meet with potential students and faculty. Be sure to stop by the Otis College booth in the Cultural and Academic Network Hall for information on programs, the upcoming centennial celebration, and more. The hall is open to the public and we'll be there this Thursday from 9am-6pm, Friday from 9am-6pm, and Saturday from 9am-2:30pm.
