Join us for the next Meet the Maker featuring Spoleto Festival USA’s Mena Mark Hanna.
Meet the Makers are quarterly get-togethers for members at the Postmodernist level and above to meet an artist or maker and learn about their creative process within an intimate setting. The Maker is often an upcoming or past exhibiting artist at the Halsey Institute. They will give a presentation describing their inspiration, passions, process, and, ultimately, final result. Members are asked to bring “a bottle of wine and an open mind.”
