Demystifying Public Art, with Lynn Basa
Monday, April 20, 7:00-8:30pm EST
More Information >>

Led by artist Lynn Basa, this 90-minute webinar covers all aspects of researching and applying for public art commissions for visual artists. Questions answered include: Is public art for me?  How do I find public art commissions? How does the selection process work? Does it require any special skills? Is it worth my while? Am I selling out if I make art for the general public? 

Conversations Inside will consist of a live 90-minute conversation between independent creative producer Meredith Boggia and MAP Fund Program Director Moira Brennan.  The interview will discuss themes and trends affecting artists working in the performing arts. 
Join Kickstarter's Stephanie Pereira for a primer on how to bring a Kickstarter project to life. We'll take a look at some successful projects from across the site and explore what kind of rewards work best, how to spread the word about your project, and other helpful tips. We're also offering the chance to watch this webinar (and participate in a live Q&A with Stephanie) in our office as a part of our Wine andWebinar series.
