DESCRIPTION

Free - 1st Floor Corner Reading Room doors open at 6:00 p.m.

Pushing the boundaries of what it means to make a drawing is almost as challenging as finding a way to push one's way into the hectic and convoluted world of the New York Art scene.  In this panel discussion, six New York Foundation for the Arts fellows talk about their experience in making their work and making a name for themselves as artists. Moderator and curator Erin Brown leads the discussion as the panelists share their strategies for success in applying for the NYFA fellowship, as well as balancing the application process with their studio practice, and generating interest in conceptually challenging work.

Initiated and organized by Arezoo Moseni, Artist Career Development Series have addressed the growing needs and concerns of independent creative workforce in New York City since 2006.
