This year we are introducing a pre-event panel discussion highlighting the Intersection of Art and Technology, featuring experts in the field such as Jessica Shaefer, Global Art Program Manager at Facebook.
We are pleased to announce the 2019 Art Visionary Award honorees, Tony DeRose and Elyse Klaidman of Pixar Animation Studios. This annual award recognizes those who promote the arts in society and our “everyday lives”.
