Please join the American Ceramic Circle for our virtual 2021 Annual Meeting and program. Board officers and committee chairs will report on recent activities of the organization. Presentations will include the announcement of the 2021 Book Award, updates on the ACC scholarship program, a preview of the 2022 symposium at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and more! Following the meeting and short break, our program will begin at 3pm with four brief presentations by Karina Corrigan, Meta Janowitz, Garth Johnson, and Rebecca Tilles. They will share recent acquisitions and research on ceramic objects—from archeological discoveries to new contemporary expressions.

Both the meeting and lecture are free and open to the public.
