The Business of Art

Business Council for the Arts, the Creative Arts Center of Dallas and Dallas Art Dealers Association are the organizers of an ongoing workshop series that offers hands-on opportunities to explore the business-side of various topics facing practicing artists.


The Business of Art: Markets for Visual Artists

In our upcoming workshop, participants will learn about current markets for visual artists and makers, including retail and medical markets.  Guest speakers include Courtney Crothers, UT Southwestern Medical Center; Donald Fowler, The Nasher Store; Gabriella Guajardo, Wisteria; Julie McCullough, Make + Made; Tessa Mugica, Wisteria; and Chris Unruh, Makers Connect.

Developing and retaining creative talent is key to building the communities we want to live and work in. We thank our presenters for speaking about a variety of markets that artists may not have considered previously.
— Katherine Wagner, CEO, Business Council for the Arts

The workshop will be held Saturday, April 1 from 9:45am to 1:30pm at the Latino Cultural Center, 2600 Live Oak Street. Tickets are available for $25 in advance for members of any of the three organizations or $35 at the door. The cost includes lunch.
