Event: Surviving as an Artist 101
Next weekend in Brooklyn the Dumbo Art Center will host Survivor: An Artist’s Opportunity Workshop. There will be a series of free sessions aimed at empowering artists with information, practical know-how and encouragement in order to advance their careers in the complex and competitive art world of New York City.
What caught our eye is how practical and useful the sessions look in general. Friday night there will be a presentation on ‘The Art of Public Speaking’ by stage and television actor Bob Keiber. Saturday there is a panel of three mid career artists who came to New York without any contacts or connections and successfully established themselves.
