AICA awards series ends

Last night at the sixth annual New England AICA awards, director Francine Koslow Miller announced that this would be the group’s last local awards ceremony. Overnight I asked her about the reasons for the decision.

“It is an enormous task to put the whole thing together — there's no budget for anything,” she writes. “The only support we get is from the hosting museums. Also, this has become all that we do as AICA New England and we want to spend more time networking, having fun and getting new writers in AICA.”

Understandable. But, as I wrote last night, the project will be missed.
