detroit art agent?
I had this idea today on the way to work...you know when you are sleepily swerving out of lanes, eating breakfast and gathering the days thoughts. Wouldn't it be great if there was one person, who didn't even have to be an artist, that would essentially act as an agent for a bunch of detroit artists? Artists would pay him/her like 20 bucks a month or maybe a fee per gallery submission and they would research ny/la galleries and send out packets for the artists. Artists would have to supply art statement/resume/images though. That person would maybe get some sort of cut if the artist got a show or gallery representation else where. There has got to be someone out here that is excellent at composing things, making phone calls and sending out packets and would want to help out some artists and get a little side money? Seeing that most detroit artists have no gallery representation working for them her I think it sounds like a good idea. Or maybe it could be someone with money that wants to get involved with a more hands on approach?
