Join this virtual omni-sensorial experiential presentation featuring 13 conceptual works (1 – 2 minutes each) from the participants in the SVA Continuing Education course, What’s The Big Idea?, led by artist Ed Woodham.


What’s The Big Idea? is an introduction to conceptual art. Participants conceptualize, develop, create and share accessible original works that combine methods from a variety of creative techniques: observation, critical thinking, problem-solving, writing, performance, installation and video. This course is a wonderful opportunity to experiment with your imagination, collaborate with others and understand how ideas are materialized.


Bring your critical eye and mind. Then relax.


Participating artists: Cathy Brown, Christine Defazio, Courtney Frances Fallon, Rina Espiritu, Terry Hardy, Rong Li, Taja Lindley, Tammy Pittman, Ben Putnam, Angel Thompson, Jessica Valoris, Tien Li Wu and Jenna Zilincar.


Moderated by Ed Woodham, artist
