Founder on the Move: CAA Conference 2019

In February, Founder Nadege Conger attended the College Art Association (CAA) conference in New York for the second time.

Many thanks to Paul Skiff, the Assistant Director for the Annual Conference at CAA. He does so much work to make this event happen and was so helpful with everything we needed for the booth!

Meeting New & Current Sabbatical Homes Members

There were many fascinating people to talk to during the conference. There were professors of the fine arts, historians, artists and curators who travel all over the world on residencies, on fellowships or on sabbaticals in support of their projects and also for the pleasure of traveling and as a respite from their work.

Conferences are always a wonderful opportunity to connect in person with current members and to meet future members of our SabbaticalHomes community.

Taking a Digital Sabbatical

At our booth this year, visitors from all over the country posed for pictures for a digital sabbatical. We talked to people from Duke University, University of Iowa, Michigan State, UT Dallas, San Diego State and more who travel all over in the course of their work with these universities! It was so much fun taking a virtual trip, but always even better when you plan your real travel with Here are a few of our virtual travelers!
