Decorative Arts Programs, All in One Place: New Events in the Field Online Calendar Launches
The Decorative Arts Trust is launching Events in the Field, an online calendar featuring programs organized by arts and history organizations across the country. This service will allow decorative arts-lovers to easily locate programs as well as to introduce those new to the field to the breadth of events available.
Events in the Field, at eventsinthefield.com, features scholarly programs from dozens of institutions and will continue to grow as a resource for those seeking to promote or find virtual or in-person decorative arts events.
The idea originated during strategic planning workshops with the Trust’s Board and staff in 2019.
“The Events in the Field initiative reinforces our effort to serve as a partner for the full breadth of the decorative arts community,” shares Matthew A. Thurlow, Executive Director of the Trust. “Whether you are a dedicated collector of 18th-century porcelain or an undergraduate student seeking an introduction to this field of study, Events in the Field will feature a range of opportunities that might not appear elsewhere. We are happy to provide this service to the field and hope the calendar will offer an opportunity to promote the excellent programs developed by colleagues from coast to coast.”
Non-profit and for-profit organizations are welcome to submit events, as long as the events are scholarly in nature. Lectures, talks, panels, discussions, seminars, colloquia, symposia, seminars, and conferences will be accepted, but exhibitions and antiques shows and art sales fall out of the scope of the calendar. The generous 2022 Events in the Field sponsor is The Magazine ANTIQUES, which celebrates its centennial this year.
We invite you to visit Events in the Field today, and feel free to share this resource with your colleagues, family, and friends!
