Crafting the Perfect Artist Statement

Thursday, September 10 from 11:30 am - 1 pm
BMoCA, 1750 13th St, Boulder

You have an Artist Statement. You might think it's "good." But chances are, it's not. This is your chance to get honest criticism from three visual arts professionals who have read hundreds of Artist Statements and want to help you make yours "great."

The Artist Statement is an important tool in promoting your work. It can help you connect with gallery owners, museum curators and buyers. Or it can turn them off. We'll share examples of Dos and Don'ts, and then in a friendly, professional manner, you'll get tips for improving your own statement.

The advisors:

  • Mardee Goff, Associate Curator, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art
  • Kathy Kucsan, Founder, Integrity Arts
  • Crystal Polis, Communications Manager, BCAA and Independent Consultant
