Our Members, Fiscally Sponsored Artists, and other program participants represent a wide range of career stages and disciplines. We love them - and, as fellow artists, we're always inspired by them. With this monthly feature, we hope you'll feel the same way!

Stay true to your vision, don’t be hard on yourself, and don’t take offense when the people who can help you won’t. The people you least expect will rally around you and your work.
