About This Event

*Due to recent health concerns involving COVID-19, specifics about this event may have changed. Please check the event's official website for the most up-to-date information.*

An artist’s voice is found in the vulnerable tension between experiencing depth and communicating that depth. However, we find ourselves in a culture of objectification, where vulnerable voices are being commercialized, stifled, and unheard. This has caused a schism in the artistic community in the measurement of technical skill against intuitive passion. Contemporary artists find themselves choosing between pursuing art to cultivate their own passion, OR sacrificing their individual voice to fit the standards of a career. We see art as therapy, and art as commercialism. We must heal this schism. Resurrect your artist, and marry the honesty of your own passion with a bullet-proof, technical understanding of your medium.
