A Live Conversation With CAR and Networking Event for and by Chicago Artists and Arts Administrators
What are all the mechanisms that local artists rely on to produce artwork and pay the bills as they pursue their artistic practices? What does the artist economy look like outside of the white wall gallery space? This open-forum edition of Conversations with CAR features local artists and art administrators offering their insights on the network of trades and bartering among artists, the “day job / night job” dilemma, and the challenges of maintaining a personal and creative balance. The forum will be followed by a networking hour to allow for the opportunity to connect, learn about each other and generate new collaborations.
