As a faculty member in the MFA Fine Arts program at the School of Visual Arts in New York, Louden teaches professional practice and studio classes to all levels, and her work has been collected by and exhibited in numerous institutions. She is the editor of the Living and Sustaining a Creative Life books, published by Intellect Books and distributed by the University of Chicago Press. The final in the series, Last Artist Standing, will be published in 2022. As a Glowtown facilitator for schools and non-profits, and the Artistic Director of the Chautauqua Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution, where she organizes a popular lecture series, we are thrilled to host the accomplished and kind Sharon Louden.
Facilitated by Assistant Curator and Director of Galleries, Meredith Lynn, the conversation will address the art world’s state in this particular moment and how the economic downturn is impacting arts organizations, artists, and publishing.
