art collector open house??

Check out this collector's house in cincinnati! It would be great if the detroit art collectors would have a summer collector open house series...where maybe once a month a different MI collector would open there doors for an art opening of their personal collection. Humm...do any big collectors read this blog?

Anne,

Sorry this does not pertain to the current topic:
Do you have any info you could share about Grad School in general? At the moment, I'm currently having a debate with myself on the matter. I can't seem to make up my mind on whether to go for it or not. Any outside opinions would be much appreciated.

That's a tough question because I really feel like the answer is specific to the person. I guess ask yourself these questions:

1. do I want to move?

2. do I want to get my foot in the door in another scene/state's art community?

3. do I have a fulfilling job now?

4. would geting a graduate degree help with a better job or more opportunities that I wouldn't find on my own?*****

5. how good am I at networking and making art on my own?

6. do I want to teach art?

7. (how long have you been out of school?) sometimes a nice break inbetween is good to build a grad school resume. And entering the real art world, not just the fabricated school art world is much different.

I would say start asking yourself these questions and also write down what you want in a grad program b/c every school offers something different. Some focus on visiting artists others studio time. I think it is always good to go to grad school in a city you want to end up making art. Or if you go to schools like Yale then you basically are given shows and connections after school. For me I wanted to wait and test the waters first. I sometimes think that just taking a year off and making art would be the same thing as going to grad school but then again you get a lot of added direction and feedback. I think it just depends on the person and what art path you choose.

did that kind of answer your question? I think it is important to ask yourself more questions to see what you really want.

Hey no where man,

So I see you are from Williamsburg...where I assume there is an artmarket.
To answere your question, yes kind of. I know not a very stong answer but we have some galleries - you can sell art here but few are lucky to make it their day job. The economy as a whole is bad so the arts really suffer. We are all hoping that with the coming of mocad (contemporary museum) in the fall things will improve.
