Above is the awesome logo that Chad Kouri designed for our forum Beyond Walls, Nontraditional Ways of Making a Living as an Artist.
I am super excited (and a bit nervous) for my first Artist at Work Forum hosted by the Chicago Artist Resource. The workshop will open up with introductions from three Chicago artists and myself where we will be talking about how we sustain a living beyond the traditional brick and mortar gallery system. During the second part of the event there will be an audience discussion including myself and the following artists:
- Lynn Basa creates works that adapt in setting and scale from intimate studio paintings to site-specific public art commissions in terrazzo and mosaic. She is the author of The Artist’s Guide to Public Art: How to Find and Win Commissions.
Lee Tracy, is an artist who explores many mediums and formats of expression to make varied points that resonate from one voice.
If you are in the Chicago area next week, feel free to drop by to say hello! The event is being held Downtown at the Chicago Cultural Center on Thursday, August 20th between 6-7:30PM and is located at 78 E. Washington, Chicago , IL 60602.
[ UPDATE ]
