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 most recent workshop, participants learned about current markets for visual artists and makers, including retail and medical markets. Guest speakers included Courtney Crothers, UT Southwestern Medical Center; Donald Fowler, The Nasher Store; 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.
