We Work Here: A Conversation on Art, Economics, & Community


In our current economy the term "working artist" might sound like an oxymoron, though there are plenty of examples of such lucky folks in town. And though art doesn't always pay the bills, creative types are often still willing to put in full-time hours on projects simply because they are compelled to do so. In "We Work Here," artists, curators, and audiences will be invited to explore a variety of current themes on art and employment. In addition to art pieces there will be interactive events. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, artists can stop by as early as 8:30 a.m. to pick up a community project. Looking for a team of artists to work for you? Check out www.intermediaarts.org to submit a proposal and available compensation. Other happenings include the Storefront for Ideas Sidewalk Sale on Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m., where exhibiting artists will have special activities and talks to engage visitors; brown bag lunch lectures at noon on Fridays; the MNKino night at 8 p.m. Monday, June 21, where filmmakers and novices network and screen their projects; and the Art Work Reading Room, where guests can engage in conversation.
