Creative Lives and Careers: On Professionalism
Sat, Feb 8, 11am-12pm

Artistic Director Stuart Horodner and Communications Manager Rachel Reese lead a conversation about professional issues facing Atlanta artists, including under- and over-exposure, gallery relationships, and social media practices.

-Wendy Olsoff
