The Yuma Symposium is comfort food for hungry artists.
The presenters come from around the country to share their work;
and like a potluck with great friends you know it’s going to be good.
We bask in the warmth of Arizona’s winter sun while forming bonds that may last thirty years or more.
February 22rd - 24th, 2018
