Eat Cake, Starving Artists
How boring is the overly romanticized idea of a starving artist? Very. There's really nothing sexy or inspirational about being hungry, unless it involves a waifish Kate Moss. Artists don't just like to make things, they also enjoy eating and wearing clothes and stuff. Besides, it's much easier to buy a paintbrush with a paycheck than with your good looks and charm.
It makes sense then that LegalArt is presenting "Creative Ways to Make a Living" this week at its SeminArt series. SeminArt consists of workshops and lectures to assist artists, not only in legal matters as their name would suggest, but also on surviving and thriving in a complex profession. A panel of local artists will discuss legal (ahem) ways -- aside from selling their work -- to make dough. Artists on the panel include P. Scott Cunningham, Christy Gast, Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova, Summer Hill Seven, and Francis Twombly, who will discuss their not-too-shabby day jobs.
