We’re still riding a high from the 2021 SEGD Conference Experience Philadelphia and celebrating our award winners! On Day 2 of the conference, Katie Lee and Lynn Kiang (Dome Collective) received the SEGD Sylvia Harris Award for the design of Seat at the Table. This exhibition, located inside the atrium of Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, recognizes the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and asks the question “Where are we now?”
