Public Discussion: The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life

3/23/2017 / 6:30pm - 8:00pm

*Reservations required

This extraordinary event is organized around the launch of Sharon Louden’s latest book The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life. A goal of the book and speaking tour is to demythologize the tired cliché of the ‘artist hero’ by dispensing with the notion that contemporary artists should be treated differently from other members of our communities. Ms. Louden will moderate a conversation with Hrag Vartanian, who wrote the foreword of the book, and Jeff Fleming. Topics will include: views on current issues in the art world today, an exploration into what models exist that allow an artist to sustain his or her creative life, and what it means for an artist to be a "culture producer."

Join us for a book signing in the lobby of the museum following the program.

Featured Speakers: Hrag Vartanian, editor-in-chief and co-founder of Hyperallergic, and Jeff Fleming, Director of the Des Moines Art Center. Moderated by Sharon Louden, artist, advocate, and editor, The Artist as Cultural Producer
