American Mosaic Summit 2012: Lexington, Kentucky
February 29 – March 4, 2012
Registration is Open! Select 2012 American Mosaic Summit from SAMA Store Menu.
Why Lexington, Kentucky?
Why not!? The town is quaint, beautiful and filled with incredible architecture, unique shops and great restaurants. The conference will be held at Lexington Center, right in the heart of it all. The surrounding rolling fields that give Lexington the claim to fame of being the “Horse Capital of the World” are breathtaking. It is also the home of some of the premier bourbon distilleries in the world. For more information on what Lexington has to offer, click here! http://www.visitlex.com.
Lexington is also the home of the University of Kentucky. Thanks to the efforts of the 2012 Host Committee Chair, Terri Pulley, we have been invited to participate in a unique opportunity to work with the University’s College of Fine Arts on producing the exhibition and conference. The SAMA Board, Staff and standing committee volunteers are honored by this designation and look forward to bringing the students, faculty and our members together to further SAMA’s mission to educate, inspire and promote excellence in mosaic arts.
Two added benefits for SAMA and its members to conduct our annual exhibition and conference in Lexington are its affordability and hospitality. We anticipate Lexington to be one of the most affordable conferences to attend in recent years due to the lower hotel rates and costs of incidentals, providing a break for all of us in these tough economic times. As a result, we are planning to accommodate a powerful program with a strong attendance! The best part is that the city of Lexington is VERY excited we will be coming to visit and are rolling out the red carpet for us every step of the way!
