1-Hour Business School for Artists **Free Lecture Series**

 lecture presented by AMY WHITAKER

   Money can be a sensitive subject for anyone, but especially for artists who commit a significant amount of their time and energy on work that doesn’t always have a foreseeable financial return.  And that’s putting it lightly!  Many artists devote a lifetime of their own money into art projects with little hope of ever breaking even! 

“1-Hour Business School for Artists” is a lecture co-sponsored by Crosstown Arts and UrbanArt, to address the issue of economics from an artists’ perspective. 

Whether it’s earning a living with your non-art day job, living off your work full-time, renting studio space, finding fame and fortune, or starting a design firm from the ground up, the economic life of an artist is complex, but not impossible to manage.

Come spend an hour with Amy Whitaker, writer of “Museum Legs:  Fatigue and Hope in the Face of Art” who will talk about economics from an understandable perspective relevant to art makers.  Uniquely qualified on the subject with an MFA in painting and an MBA from Yale, Whitaker will cover big-picture economic and finance theory, and some practical applications for use by artists of the supply & demand and time value of money.
