On Tuesday, February 18, we invited Austin's community of curators and our board of directors to meet for lunch in the Crenshaw Room at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum. We discussed our new Curatorial Board, Artwork Criteria, and Curatorial Statement, developed by Independent Curator Salvador Jaime Castillo and the Artist's Liason to the GA Board Eleanor Droll. We talked about our mission to empower artists and sustain communities, and how we've grown.
The curators in attendance provided great insights on how to design our new Curatorial Board. We look forward to having their input on our next call for artists.
We plan to create more opportunities for curators to participate in Generous Art's dynamic shows and professional development for artists.
