In 2019, SNAG is celebrating 50 years as an organization. To talk about where we are going, we must talk about where we have have been. SNAG’s 48th Annual Conference, The Loop: Coming Full Circle will celebrate 50 years of SNAG by focusing on the history of our field and SNAG’s vital place within that history, as both are inextricably intertwined through the collective pivotal moments that have brought the makers, educators, artists, and students in this field together and to where we are today.

In keeping with the theme of this year’s conference, SNAG’s Annual Juried Student Exhibition will focus on the  journey our field has gone through over the past 50 years and a chance to explore work that celebrates and reflects on our field's history

The exhibition will be held onsite at the 2019 SNAG Conference in Chicago, Illinois, May 22-25.

  • Best in Show - $50 in Trunk Show Bucks and a ¼ page ad in Metalsmith, which will be highlighted throughout the year within SNAG marketing
