About Us


We have been writing about society and culture for 25 years, in Chicago, New York, and other venues. Lucia’s Symposium first appeared in the mid 80s in print, newspapers to be exact. The blog  luciassymposium.blogspot has appeared since 2004 and TheSymp.com  for several years now. We have often written about the art of travel, as well as book reviews, art and architecture. Our Master’s in Art History from theUniversity of Leeds was supervised by Quentin Bell. Most recently we were a Contributing Writer for AVENUE magazine and Manhattan Media newspapers . Like our Grandmother Adams who wrote letters to the editor to the Saturday Evening Post for fifty years, we never seem to run out of opinions.
