New Location
This year we moved to a new location. Rock Art 2012 will meet in the auditorium of the Mingei International Museum in the heart of Balboa Park, just one block east of the Museum of Man. Please note: to reach the auditorium, use the Alcazar Garden entrance on the west side of the Mingei Museum; do not enter the Mingei’s main entrance on the Panama Plaza side of the building. Seating is limited, so register early.

Our 2012 Symposium logo and T-shirt design (seen at right) is based on an interior Salish pictograph panel from Paradise Ranch, located on a high granite cliff with a commanding view of magnificent Okanagan Lake in central British Columbia. Rock Art 2012 T-shirts are available at a cost of $15. Orders must be received by October 19 to guarantee a shirt, so be sure to place your order along with your registration.
