Synopsis

In this collection of interviews, artists from various disciplines and in various stages of their careers discuss how they balance their art with the practical aspects of earning a living. They explore how this dichotomy, which affects them creatively, financially, spiritually, and professionally, can be both frustrating and nourishing. Some artists have managed to find art-related work to make ends meet. Others contemplate their dual role in both the artistic community and in the corporate or academic world. They discuss the role art plays in influencing social change and the role technology has played in revolutionizing the creation of art and its marketing and distribution. These insights into how artists merge their creative life with their financial obligations will be useful to both instructors and students in the arts. Topics such as how artists have managed to acquire flexible work schedules and educational leave will also appeal to professional artists looking for employment suggestions or alternatives. Representative artists include painters, writers, musicians, dancers, actors, and performance artists.
