Since the 1930s, the Mid-America College Art Association (MACAA) has provided a forum for the artist/teachers of America to discuss and debate the issues of our profession, to share ideas and information of mutual benefit and to affirm the friendships and collegiality that bind us together.
This exhibition coincides with the 2012 MACAA Conference being hosted by Wayne State University’s James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History from October 3 through October 6. More information about the conference can be found at <art.wayne.edu/DETROIT2012/>.
