Why We Share

Because the emails, messages and texts continue. And We Care.

"Dan, I need help selling my art, please tell me where the buyers are."
"Dan, I'm ready to take my art career seriously bro, how do I sell art?"

So I pass on advice, we set up The Black Book Conversations, we share class info from C4 Atlanta, we have a site full of classes, events and workshops at AND we publish a weekly podcast with inspiring stories of how other artists got their start. 

And we send out weekly emails with info like below. 
Let go of the Starving Artist mentality and make a move onto the Thriving Artist Art Life. 

ps. check out the info below on some of the BIG MONEY moves happening in the Arts. 


Arts & Economic Prosperity IV is our fourth study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry's impact on the economy. The most comprehensive study of its kind ever conducted, it gives us a quantifiable economic impact of nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their audiences. Using findings from 182 regions representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, an input-output economic model is able to deliver national estimates.

Quick Facts

Nationally, the industry generated $135.2 billion of economic activity—$61.1 billion by the nation's nonprofit arts and culture organizations in addition to $74.1 billion in event-related expenditures by their audiences. This economic activity supports 4.13 million full-time jobs and generates $86.68 billion in resident household income. Our industry also generates $22.3 billion in revenue to local, state, and federal governments every year—a yield well beyond their collective $4 billion in arts allocations. Despite the economic headwinds that our country faced in 2010, the results are impressive.
