The Artist's Guide

Please check out this videofrom the Art21 blog.  It is an interview with Jackie Battenfield. She and Trong Gia Nguyen discuss Jackie's new book, The Artist's Guide: How to Make a Living Doing What You Love.

Jackie Battenfield Interviewed By Trong Gia Nguyen from Trong Gia Nguyen on Vimeo.

Jackie is the longtime coordinator of The Bronx Museum of Art's Artist in the Marketplace program and respected artist in her own right. Her book is based on her work at the AIM program and working with Creative Capital. I am very happy to have been included in the book as an example of someone making art happen outside of traditional venues, particularly in the realm of community-based art works.

After you watch the video, you can go buy the book on Jackie's website. And then go make a living doing what you love!
