ACHF Arts Access
Minnesota artists are able to expand or further develop their artistic abilities through varied learning opportunities. Minnesota artists are able to develop business skills needed to support their professional art work. More Minnesotans are able to engage in or with the work of Minnesota artists.
1) Through this project I participated in complex digital printing processes; examined and refined a more cohesive presentation style -- framing, no matting, mounting photographs to aluminum through a heated-diabond process; also, through the public presentation of the work, I engaged/exchanged thoughts with our fellow citizens who had their own ideas/reactions/impressions to the work. Additionally, I met with 3 classes of art students from College of Visual Art, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and Arts Institutes International Minnesota to explain not only my last year’s work but more broadly how I look at the transitional challenges from student to young artist. All these experiences speak to a sense of growth and participation with the “new,” for which I am appreciative. 2) Reflection on the process, by working on publications (to express in words the experiences and sense of “new”). 2: 1. I put this solo show on my own which required budget analysis, schedules, realizing the work as a communicable object/physical entity (versus a digital file to be experienced on my personal computer), marketing concerns, and surprisingly in this case, a venue change. 2. How did you evaluate that achievement? I scheduled appointments with curators, created and kept a budget of the project; made a catering head-count; met with other artists to see what they’ve previously learned; re-evaluated my strengths and weaknesses. Paid attention to what could be specifically quantitative.
