Introducing A Life in the Arts --- our virtual series celebrating the lives of artists

"Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one" Stella Adler

With this post we're officially unveiling a project we began last Fall. 'A Life in the Arts' was conceived as a series of Zoom interviews with people who have dedicated their lives to the arts. Our hope is that by sharing these interviews we'll not only help emerging artists, but also reinforce the importance of the entrepreneurial skills an arts discipline inspires. Of course, we are also very happy to celebrate the accomplishments of our interview participants, as well. 

Given the challenges of the pandemic, the pressure to adapt has landed heavily on the shoulders of many artists - and performing artists in particular - who've found themselves struggling to adjust to dramatic changes in both their employment and practice. Recognizing that, we wanted to kick off this series by interviewing Dr. Mitchell SaskinDr. Saskin is a Clinical Psychologist with a private practice and an adjunct professor at the Teacher's College of Columbia University.  We invited him to share tips on how artists may better cope with the challenges of our times. Of course, as you might imagine, much of what he had to say is helpful to all of us.

We'll be offering a new series of interviews in February. To participate in them, please follow us on Facebook or send an email to masterworkarts@gmail.com
