Discussion and Book Signing: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

5905 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 92656

7:00pm

At a time when art is increasingly viewed as a commodity and art-school graduates feel that gallery representation is imperative for making a living, it is more important than ever to show the reality of how an artist sustains a creative practice over time. The 40 essays collected in Living and Sustaining a Creative Life are written by artists in their own voices and take the form of narratives, statements, and interviews. Although each story is different and unique, the common thread is an ongoing commitment to creativity, both inside and outside the studio, that helps define what "success" means to a professional artist today.

Panelists include:

Shamim M. Momin, Director and Curator LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division)
Randy Sommer, Co-Owner ACME.
Timothy Nolan, Artist 
George Stoll, Artist
Alexandra Grant, Artist
Sharon Louden, Artist, Editor 

Named as one of the Top Art Books of 2013 by Hyperallergic, and already in its fourth printing in four months, Living and Sustaining a Creative Life unveils the mystery behind sustainable creativity. This event is part of a 45-stop book tour of town-hall forums all over the country.
