Metals Symposium

Saturday, November 7, 2020

The annual Texas Metals Symposium brings top artists working in the field of jewelry and metals for a day-long presentation to participants from across the State and beyond. This year, to prevent the spread of COVID, the symposium will be held virtually, allowing many more to "attend" the presentations.

  • Jessica Calderwood, Associate Professor of Art at Ball State University
  • Andrew Kuebeck, Assistant Professor and Area Head of the Jewelry/Metals/Enameling Department at Kent State University
  • Rebekah Frank, Artist based in the Mission District of San Francisco, CA
