Arts in Store: Rethinking the Relationship Between Art and Business
Michael Markowsky's goal was to start a conversation about the relationship between art and business. He set out to interview the most interesting artists and entrepreneurs he could find: to get some practical advice on how artists can make a living practicing their craft, and what business people can learn from the artistic process. This book contains 8 of the over 30 interviews he recorded, including discussions with Visual Artists, a Musician, a Marketing Consultant, a Marketing Coach, an Etiquette Consultant and an Art Writer. These frank and honest discussions - while always illuminating and insightful - are often laugh-out loud hilarious! Also included are Michael's attempts to set-up his easel and make a painting inside of local businesses. View the proposal he sent to retail giant Target, as well as documentation from his successful residency in the courtyard of One Colorado, a historic retail space in Pasadena, California.
