Please join the American Ceramic Circle for our 2022 Symposium to be held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, October 26-28, 2022. After a tremendous response, we have now reached capacity for the symposium and registration is now closed. 

The ACC symposium will begin with an evening welcome reception on Wednesday, October 26, at the American Folk Art Museum. On Thursday, October 27, and Friday, October 28, we will gather in the Met's Sacerdote Lecture Hall to hear from a roster of renowned speakers, including Gaye Blake Roberts (The Wedgwood Museum), Femke Diercks (Rijksmuseum), Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen (Metropolitan Museum of Art), collector Martin Eidelberg, and Rachel Delphia (Carnegie Museum of Art) in conversation with artist Dr. Sharif Bey. We will enjoy private, curator-led tours featuring ceramics on view at the Met, including the new exhibition "Hear Me Now: The Black Potters of Old Edgefield, South Carolina." We eagerly anticipate this wonderful in-person Symposium!
