Convergence, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's (SAIC) 150th Anniversary Academic Symposium, celebrated its renowned academic programs. This two-day symposium was led by Dean of Faculty, Lisa Wainwright, and brought together SAIC alumni from the Departments of Arts Administration and Policy;
Art Education; Art Therapy; Art History, Theory, and Criticism; New Arts Journalism; and Visual and Critical Studies, as well as the MFA in Studio and Writing
programs to unpack the experience of an academic education in the context of an interdisciplinary art and design school. The symposium was structured as a series of conversations, where alumni from various Master of Arts programs were grouped to examine how SAIC allowed their differing practices to overlap and synergize.
SAIC's 150th branding was created by Plural.
