The 2017 Halstead Design Challenge “Memento” asked artists to incorporate a photo into a brooch constructed primarily from materials in the Halstead challenge kit. Only 200 challenge kits were available. A juried selection from all entries was exhibited at the SNAG New Orleans Conference in May 2017. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who participated!
