Mark your calendar for October 28-30, 2021! The ACC Annual Symposium will be hosted by Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, one of the premier ceramic collections in the United States. In addition to hearing presentations by esteemed professionals and emerging voices during the symposium, ACC pre-conference registrants will have the opportunity to attend hands-on sessions and ceramics-focused tours in Winterthur’s private study areas and House Rooms. Post-conference registrants will enjoy a day trip to visit the newly-reimagined Early American Art galleries at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as well as another local venue.​

Please note: The 50th Anniversary ACC Symposium originally planned for The Metropolitan Museum of Art has been postponed in alignment with the Museum's Covid safety protocol.
