IPCA Charitable Giving Page

At this time of annual giving to your favorite non-profits, our US members might like to consider a tax-deductible gift to the IPCA in support of its new and enhanced initiatives on behalf of the polymer community.
As individual artists, you will soon be able to participate in member only peer-to-peer forums moderated by international artists, and enjoy many new member benefits including a new bi-monthly publication, annual “Tips and Tutes” e-book, and more.
With your help, the IPCA Board hopes to be able to start developing curriculum for school programs, grants to individual artists and guilds, as well begin outreach to Museum curators, galleries and publications in the larger art world to increase awareness of the medium and become a point of contact for inquires about artists in the field for potential exhibitions, etc.
We hope you will consider including IPCA in your charitable giving this year. Happy Holidays and a Healthy and Creative New Year to all our members,

The IPCA Executive Board

75 at 75

The Racine Art Museum with be honoring the 75th anniversary of RAM's parental museum the Charles A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts with two exhibits... 75 at 75: Significant Works from RAM's Collectiom and Paul Smith: Masters of Craft.  The perspective of 75 at 75 is that the pieces in the museum have several stories to tell beyond what is first visible. Included in this retrospective is Elise Winter's Red Ruffle Cascade neckpiece.  I am curious to see what other polymer pieces may be displayed. RAM has an extraordinary collection of polymer art.
