Conference and CfP: Munsell Centennial Color Symposium

The Inter-Society Color Council and the International Color Association would like to invite your faculty and students to attend a special COLOR symposium honoring A.H. Munsell in June 2018.

The Munsell Centennial Color Symposium will take place from June 10th to the 15th at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. MassArt was formerly known as the Massachusetts Normal Art School when Munsell taught there for over thirty years in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Munsell was a teacher, artist and color explorer who developed the color ordering system that became the basis for modern color science. What is at the cutting edge of color exploration today? What directions might we be going in the future? How can we work together to promote color literacy in the 21st century? The Symposium will invite participants to think about and discuss these questions with colleagues from around the world.

Call For Artwork

We are seeking artwork reflecting the themes of the conference to be used for publicity. Winning entries will also be published in a special edition of Color Research and Application celebrating the Munsell centennial. The journal’s cover is reserved for student artwork. Students are highly encouraged to submit.

Art students will receive a reduced conference registration fee. Inexpensive dorm housing is available.
