The SAY IT LOUD WIA Texas exhibit will debut at the 82nd Annual Texas Society of Architects (TxA) “Legacy” Conference + Design Expo in San Antonio, Texas this October 7 – 8, 2021. This year’s conference will be an in-person event.

In the year following the TxA Conference, the SAY IT LOUD WIA Texas exhibit will travel to participating AIA chapters where it will be featured in different cities, university campuses and locations throughout Texas.

To date, SAY IT LOUD exhibitions have been viewed by an estimate total 35,000 visitors since January 2017. From inception, multiple online publications (such as Forbes, Curbed and The Architects Newspaper) with large subscription bases have helped promote the exhibitions further expanding its impact. One featured firm expressed an increase in business which they attributed to being featured in SAY IT LOUD.
