By Peggy Roalf   Thursday October 30, 2014

AI-AP, the parent company of DART: Design Arts Daily, invites subscribers and their friends to The Party, on Thursday, November 6, to launch American Illustration 33, American Photography 30, Latin American Ilustración 3, Latin American Fotografía 3, and the International Motion Art AwardsTickets.

But first, warm up at the BIG TALK Symposium, on Wednesday, November 5.  From 1 to 5 pm, you can tantalize your imagination through a series of panels with the jurors and book designers—and some special guests—who will get inside the minds of some of the industry’s hottest talents.

The Big Talk takes place at the SVA Theater, 333 West 23rd Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues, NY, NY. It’s Free, but register now, as seating is limited. If you have already RSVP’d for The Party, you are automatically registered for The Big Talk.
