Blue Star Contemporary is pleased to welcome Sharon Louden and Home Bodies exhibiting artist Lenka Clayton in conversation with the public about how artists sustain their practice and their greater societal role. Through panel discussions, symposia, casual conversations, and town hall forums, we are connecting book contributors, local artists, critics, nonprofit participants, thought leaders, and other members of the general public to learn about, lend their voices to, and be inspired by the vast range of influence that visual artists exert on society. We are including as many contributors as possible from the book, helping to further our efforts to cross-pollinate artists among regions. Our ultimate goal is to de-mythologize the tired cliché of the Artist Hero by dispensing with the notion that contemporary artists should be treated differently from other members of our communities.
