SAIC Panel Discussion - Creative Economy

Last week most of us from the gallery headed over to the School of the Art Institute's ballroom on Michigan Avenue. Aaron and David were invited to sit on a panel discussion, Creative Economy - Galleries, Artists, & the Market. Also contributing to the panel were a few other figures in the CHGO art community; Rhona Hoffman, Larry Fields (art collector), Shannon Stratton, and moderator, Duke Reiter. It was a great opportunity to exchange ideas and for the panel to answer questions from the audience, which consisted mostly of SAIC students. Afterward, I was on hand to disperse gallery postcards and information, but also to spread the word about our free art education programming. It was a great event, and I hope we get to be a part of more like them in the future. More frequent discussions and exchanging of ideas from all players in the art world, will only help CHGO's art community.
