Please join us for a special workshop on The Commerce of Art with Amrita Sen (W’92). What does your art mean to you? How is your art unique? Who is your audience and how do you attract customers? Amrita will talk about the artistic entrepreneur and how to develop your brand identity. Food will be served! RSVP with Kali Meeks is recommended, but not required.
