Hello, art lovers!
Artists at Work, our debut podcast, shares stories from people who make art their business.
After four pilot episodes late last year, we're gearing up to bring you 12 brand new episodes in 2019. Episodes begin on January 17th and will come out every other Thursday.
We're excited at some of the guests we have lined up for you:
Carol Piersol, Artistic Director of 5th Wall Theatre
Princess Johnson, Founding Director of Royal Expressions Contemporary Ballet
Bill Martin, Executive Director of The Valentine
Noah Scalin, artist, author, and consultant.
And that’s just the beginning! We want to grow Artists at Work into an informative and inspirational resource for artists and arts administrators alike. We need your help!

We're also thrilled to offer an Artists at Work membership: the AAW Patrons.
Your membership helps us to cover the costs of producing the show—website hosting, member management services, and the creative tools we need—and ultimately able to grow our team and bring you more good things in the future.
Our goal is $1,000.
This goal will help us cover six months of production costs while we bring you season 1. We hope to be able to say our show is 100% by artists, for artists, supported by artists and their patrons. Anything beyond that will be saved for, if all goes well, season 2 of the show!

Thank you for your support so far. I’ll be back on the 17th with the premiere of season one on Thursday, January 17th, featuring 5th Wall Theatre’s Carol Piersol!
I work with Carol on the board of directors for 5th Wall and she immediately came to mind to kick off the season. She’s an amazing artist and artistic director, and I thoroughly enjoyed our interview. I know you will, too.
