We are excited to bring SECAC back to Richmond, Virginia, for its 79th annual meeting, to be held at the Richmond Marriott Downtown from October 11 to 14, 2023. This year, several institutions from Central Virginia will collaborate to create a dynamic conference, reflective of the rich educational and artistic communities celebrated across the region. Guided by the theme of Crossroads, we consider how, much like Richmond and the country at large, the art world is navigating how best to construct a more thoughtful, inclusive, and sustainable future. By using this theme as our guide, we hope to foster constructive dialogue at the intersections of art, art history, education, and design. The conference will be embedded in the heart of Richmond, with exhibitions, events, programs, and speakers located throughout the city.
