Our April Artists Discussion group was well attended and enthusiastically received. Artists were hungry to learn more about "How to Present Your Artwork and Get Connected!" Many thanks to our presenter, Alessandra Moctezuma, Gallery Director and Museum Studies Professor at San Diego Mesa College.
Professor Montezuma has graciously provided us with a copy of her slides so that attendees could recall her suggestions and review the websites and Instagram feeds she used as examples. Download the document here:
Thank you for an exciting and informative presentation!
San Diego Mesa College offers the only hands on program in Museum Studies and Gallery Exhibition Skills
. In the courses students learn from arts professionals and discover what goes on behind-the-scenes in local museums and arts organizations. Artists can learn to present and promote their work and get connected with the San Diego art scene.
Professor Alessandra Moctezuma has an extensive background working as an artist, as a founder of arts collectives, as a public arts manager, and as a curator. Working in arts organizations, Professor Moctezuma learned many skills that were not taught in art school or studio art classes. She designed courses that offer an overview of the art world and allow students and interested artists to develop skills to succeed as professionals. Making art is essential but getting the work out into the world is crucial!
