Times: 
Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m.
Location: 
Farnsworth Auditorium
Join emerging and mid-career artists for this 3-part series covering topics relevant to artists living and working today. Artists such as Kat Buchanan, Kenny Cole, Alexis Iammarino, Mark Kelly, Alan Magee, Kathryn Oliver, Colin Page, Jessica Stammen, and Andy White will engage each other and the audience in conversation.
 
What does it mean to maintain a studio practice as a working artist? How do you as an artist manage your time and space? What are the rewards and burdens of making art for money (i.e making one’s “living” as an artist)? How is value attached to the products of art-making?
 
What are the challenges and rewards of working collaboratively? What are different forms that artistic fellowship can take? What does it mean to have or to be a mentor?
 
What political issues inform your work? How do you see your role as an artist in terms of social justice and political activism? How effective can artists truly be in promoting social change?
