Panel Conversation with Sharon Louden: Artists as Change-Makers in Community

7:00 PM  - 8:30 PM
Thursday Feb 8, 2018
Weyerhaeuser Memorial Chapel

The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life is a collection of essays by 40 visual artists. Edited by artist, educator, and advocate for artists Sharon Louden, the book is a platform for conversation that describes how artists extend their practices outside of their studios. Sharon Louden will moderate a lively conversation between artists Tia-Simone Gardner, Mara Duvra and Macalester drawing professor Megan Vossler, about what it means to sustain a creative life today. Who are we as contemporary artists, and what do we want and need in order to thrive? The audience will be invited to reflect on these questions, and to participate in this wide-ranging conversation. The artists will not only field questions, but also make connections with those who attend. A book-signing will follow the conversation, with books available for purchase. We hope you'll join us for this special event!
