Carver museum launches conversation series
Monday, November 2, 2020 by Tai Moses
A basic understanding of business may not be something most artists enjoy, but it’s essential to lasting success and a productive career. The George Washington Carver Museum, Cultural and Genealogy Center, in collaboration with Capitol View Arts, is launching the fourth installment of its Art and Business Conversation Series, which offers some practical skills that will “provide motivated artists insight into the business of art and the cultivation of sustainable full-time careers” along with addressing some of the challenges artists of color face in the workplace. Guest speakers and presenters include Lise Ragbir, director of the Christian-Green Gallery and the Idea Lab at UT Austin; Andrea Mellard, director of public programs and community engagement for The Contemporary Austin; Shani Hebert, president of Hebert Tax Consulting, LLC; visual artist Ryan Runcie; and Adrian Resendez, attorney for Texas Lawyers and Accountants for the Arts. All three webinars take place on Zoom, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on three Thursdays this month.
