CANCELED: design arts conference call; panel still on

Due to the federal government shutdown, National Endowment for the Arts Director of Design Jason Schupbach is on furlough and will not be available to participate in the design arts lecture scheduled for Oct. 15 nor the Oct. 16 conference call. We will make every effort to reschedule the conference call later this year.

The lecture has changed to a panel discussion featuring Hub Bub Director Cate Ryba, recipient of an Our Town grant, SCAC Executive Director Ken May and other design arts leaders. The public is invited to the panel, which takes place Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Columbia Museum of Art. Tickets to the panel discussion are $10 for those who are not members of the Columbia Design League, but RSVPS are not required. The panel is produced by the Columbia Design League and the South Carolina Arts Commission.
