Beyond Art – Myth and Meaning in the Career of an Artist
Is it actually skill that determines an artist's level of success? With a robust work ethic in place does an artist rocket to fame and fortune? Do you want to hear the answers to those questions and more?
Together we will examine some of the myths, truths, and lies artists might ponder beyond art.

Don't miss Aziza Claudia Gibson-Hunter's presentation on advancing your career and achieving success as an artist that will address those critical questions and more. Ms. Gibson-Hunter, co-founded Black Artists of DC (BADC) an organization which supports talented artists in the DC area by providing opportunities to learn about the "art industry" and successful ways to interface with it, and organizing exhibitions and workshops and other activities for the group and for individual artists. She is an arts educator and a widely exhibited artist. Formerly a professor of printmaking at Howard University, she also gained entrepreneurial experience from her successful greeting card business.

Networking Lunch: Enjoy a three-course lunch and spend time networking.
