The Center for Art in Wood held an educational symposium at WHYY in The Dorrance H. Hamilton Public Media Commons in January 2015. This was the first symposium to address the work of Emil Milan and his circle of influence. The fruits of the research project were conducted by Barry Gordon, Phil Jurus and Norm Sartorius as well as the input of leading scholars in the field of Craft History. All were brought together to highlight the importance of Emil Milan in the worlds of craft, design and art during the second half of the 20th Century.
The symposium was geared toward both those newly interested in the field as well as artists, scholars and educators.
