Further discussion of the content and other features will take place over the electronic mailing list. Once more content is added, the web site will officially be linked to the ARLIS homepage.
2002 conference in St. Louis.
A call was made for proposals. It was suggested that we need to find the names of women artists in the St. Louis area. E. Petraits, an artist herself in St. Louis, will look into this. Further suggestions were:
a possible contact for a speaker from a group of women artists in St. Louis.
2) a connection with the Women's Caucus for the Arts, especially if there is a chapter in St. Louis.
a "women writing for the arts" activity which could be a workshop proposal.
Further discussion of these and other proposals will take place on our list when it is up and running. St. Louis conference will be meeting with VRA.
M. Juarez, Moderator for 2001-2002, has a vision for 50 people attending the next Women and Arts Round Table so we can have a bigger impact in ARLIS. He believes that we should send out more invitations. This year we sent out an invitation and many people responded.
