I think I broke one of the cardinal rules of blogging by skipping town on my own blog without warning. It is good to be home ... to rest, reflect, and ask what someone at Convention called the "Alfie" question—what's it all about?

What did I learn? First and foremost, to REGISTER EARLY. Staying at an overflow hotel makes it hard to blog, power-nap, or pace ones' self throughout the days.

For reasons I'm too embarrassed, exhausted or simply unwilling to discuss, I'm seated at the Phoenix Airport at 7:00 a.m. on my way home to LA.

While everyone else was at an ArtVenture Saturday afternoon, the rest of us convened to explore a new Convention track - Career 360.

The latter was certainly the case at Multicultural Internship Programs, a session I facilitated along with my colleagues Talia Gibas (Program Assistant, The Getty Foundation, Multicultural Undergraduate Internship Program) and Will Maitland Weiss (Executive Director, Arts And Business Council of New York).
