In the heart of South Central Pennsylvania's bucolic Amish community is our host city, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Just 80 miles from both Philadelphia and Baltimore, Lancaster was among the earliest inland British colonial settlements, and served as capital of the United States in 1777 (albeit for one day!). Today, downtown Lancaster is a charming, highly walkable, diverse urban center, recently named the #4 most exciting small city in America, with dozens of art galleries, museums, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and our sponsor institutions Pennsylvania College of Art & Design and Millersville University. During your stay be sure to visit Lancaster Central Market, the oldest continuously-operating farmer's market in America, conveniently located adjacent to the conference hotel. And following the keynote address by LaToya Ruby Frazier, join in First Friday, Lancaster's monthly celebration of the arts, featuring dozens of open galleries, museums, and performing arts venues throughout the city.
