Episode – 40 End of the year advice from artist

Happy New Year?

Welcome to ArtBox DMV. In this episode Jason pulls to together words of advice from Artist he interviewed in 2020. A year that we will not easily forget. From the Covid-19 pandemic, to justice for black lives, a presidential election and killer hornets. Because of covid, Galleries and museums had to close to the public. Art fairs went virtual. Galleries and museums went on online with viewings and talk backs. Artist started uploading videos of their work. We won’t know what the future will hold for us but things are looking up. There’s a vaccine out to fight Covid and we the people won and voted out a tyrant. So as 2020 closes and 2021 opens let us reflect, organize and prepare with words of advice from interviews Jason did in 2020. You’ll hear from Aniekan Udofia, Johnny Dollar, Sarah Jamison, Ali Shrago-Spechler, Julie Brookman, Christy Powers, Carlos Ramirez and Umar Rashid.
