45th Annual Meeting

Los Angeles, CA

45th Annual Meeting
Los Angeles, CA
November 6 - 8, 2019

After an eleven-year hiatus, the WAAC Annual Meeting returns to Los Angeles!  Since that time there have been many notable cultural additions to the city such as The Broad, The Wende Museum, The Marciano Art Foundation, Hauser & Wirth to name a few. There is even a new metro line that goes from the beach to downtown!

 

So, besides the great presentations and friendly faces you'll see at the meeting, it's also a great time to discover LA again.  

 

Thank you to our meeting sponsors!
