MMAA-hosted reception starts at 5:30 PM, program starts at 6:00 PM. Registration required - http://springboardforthearts.org/product/may-26-living-and-sustaining-a-creative-life/.
Join Sharon Louden, author of Living and Sustaining a Creative Life, and Hrag Vartanian, co-founder and editor-in-chief of international art blog Hyperallergic - http://hyperallergic.com/, in conversation. They will debunk the myth that the only way for an artist to make a living from their work is through gallery representation, and offer different, entrepreneurial models of sustaining a creative practice.
Q&A and book-signing with Sharon Louden to follow. Copies of Living and Sustaining a Creative Life will be available for purchase for $40. http://www.press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/distributed/L/bo16814556.html
