What does a strong artist statement look like? What should it include? Learn along with facilitator Amanda Smith, Gallery Manager at The Union for Contemporary Art.
WAW is a year-round series of professional development opportunities that focuses on learning and practical skills, designed to help Omaha area artists cultivate or refresh the practical aspects of their creative practice. Each month is devoted to one topic. Expert community partners will lead a main learning session, followed by a hands-on, collaborative workshop later in the month.
Participants will create robust networks of peers and professional contacts alongside these opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.
Every session/workshop is free and open to the public.
