GCEA 2020

The 2020 Annual GCEA has been moved to a virtual conference. It will take place July 27-28. 

Ball State University is honored to welcome the GCEA family “back home again” to Indiana and we look forward to reconnecting with old friends and meeting new ones.

While you are here, you will have the opportunity to experience innovative presentations and immersive hands-on lab sessions. As we are part of the BSU School of Art, we are delighted to offer unique opportunities with a variety of materials and media. As is the longstanding GCEA tradition, we look forward to offering fresh experiences centered around food, family, and fun.
