Arts Management Class Collaborates with West Main Artists Cooperative
May 10, 2019
Professor Mary Carlisle’s Arts Management class developed a collaborative workshop with West Main Artists Cooperative. “Jury Ready: Preparing to Enter a Juried Show” covered all aspects of entering work into a juried show, from photographing and packaging to pricing and mounting the art.
Professor Carlisle said, “Our goal in the Department of Art and Design is to provide exceptional visual arts programs and dynamic educational and artistic experiences to our students. Collaborations such as this one allow them to go out into the field and share their knowledge with a community of artists while gaining hands-on experience. Projects like this also serve as an excellent example of our School of the Arts Initiative, Creativity That Works, through which we prepare passionate young artists for productive careers in the arts.”
The collaboration was organized by students in the Art and Design department and the event was spearheaded by Art History major Jillian Tess Stelow ’19.
