Join the ISC at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ on September 14, 2017 for a conversation: The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life. Editor Sharon Louden will be joined in conversation with artist Ariana Barat, artist contributor from The Artist as Culture Producer, Chloe Bass, and artist contributor from Living and Sustaining a Creative Life, Sean Mellyn at MANA Contemporary. This event is hosted by the International Sculpture Center in partnership with MANA Contemporary. A book signing will follow.
The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life is a collection of essays by 40 visual artists. Edited by artist and educator, Sharon Louden, the book describes how artists extend their practices outside of their studios. All of these contributors have impactful, artistic activities as change agents in their communities. Their first-hand stories show the general public how contemporary artists of the 21st century add to creative economies through their out-of-the-box thinking while also generously contributing to the well-being of others. Although there is a misconception that artists are invisible and hidden, the truth is that they furnish measurable and innovative outcomes at the front lines of education, the non-profit sector, and corporate environments.
The panel discussion will be held in the theater at Mana Contemporary at 6:00PM. A book signing will follow the conversation. This event is free and RSVP is required. Space is limited.
