Confronting Your Professional Legacy: David Paul Bayles (Podcast)

Last fall I received an email from David Paul Bayles, who was a member of my class at the time. The email read, in part: Recently The Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley (third largest special collections library in the U.S.) created The David Paul Bayles Photographic Archive to create a home for my lifes work. I am driving down to meet with them on Monday to place a large number of prints and oral history audio files into the Archive. Whoa. How cool is that A major institution deemed Davids work ...

The Career Journey of Growth-Minded Artists

One of the most-used business metaphors is the ladder of success. With this metaphor its assumed that you start at the bottom and work your way to the top rung in a predictable, progressive fashion. Wouldnt it be easy if you always knew your next steps But this isnt how your business works. Think about it.

Many, if not most, artists...

Whos Who in the Art Museum

If its on your bucket list to schedule a museum exhibition, volunteer or work at a museum, or see your art in a museum collection, you will benefit if you understand how a museum administration is structured. While I havent been part of the museum world since 2001, I am confident that what I share below can still be helpful to you. Keep in mind, however, that not all museums operate the same way, and there is a vast difference between how small and large museum personnel divide their responsibi...

Taking Perfectly Imperfect Action

You know that Im all about action. My book, Id Rather Be in the Studio, is broken up into actions rather than chapters. While Im a champion of moving forward, I also slow down to read, research, and learn, which is crucial because my superpower is teaching. While I could easily bliss out on months of research, the fact is, at some point (not too late in the process), the learning phase must make room for the action phase. No matter how much you research, it doesnt do you any good until you p...
