The Stonecroft Symposium: Working Together is the second in a series of free annual symposia, held over the 2018-22 period. The series is made possible with a generous gift from the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts. It enables CUAG to cultivate discussions of timely and relevant ideas raised by the artists who lead our programming, and to encourage open and reciprocal public exchange.

CUAG acknowledges with sincere gratitude the support of the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts, which promotes education in the visual arts and fosters the public’s appreciation of the visual arts.
