Join us for what is sure to be one of the the highlights of the 2019 conference! The Convocation begins with recognition of the Association’s honors and awards recipients, along with the generous donors who have made these awards available, followed by the Visual Resources Association Foundation Legacy Lecture given by Dan Goods.

Dan Goods is an independent artist and the Visual Strategist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. During the day he runs The Studio at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, leading a team developing creative ways of communicating and working to transform complex concepts into compelling stories that can be universally understood. In his leadership role there, Goods uses his artistic talents and passion for creating experiences where people are reminded of the gift and privilege of being alive. After hours, he works on a wide range of personal creative projects. Currently he is collaborating with others on new public art pieces in San Diego and San Francisco and is developing the “Museum of Awe,” an experience of art, science, theater and surprise, with David Delgado and Ivan Amato. Goods won an International Design Excellence Award for his work on the eCLOUD, a 110-foot-long digital sculpture at the San Jose International Airport. He has worked on other large-scale art projects at the Atlanta International Airport, at SIAS International University in China and for BMW in Paris, and has shown his work in museums around the world.

We hope that you will join us at the Convocation on Wednesday, March 27th, to hear Dan Goods speak about his unusual journey and how he has found that innovation, passion, and creativity can be unleashed to understand what it means to be you and what it means to be human.
