I have just recently been accepted to The Evergreen State College here in Washington State.
After 20 years of doing just visual art as a mainstay I’ve decided to expand my options and take on finishing my BA, adding a goodly dose of Art History to the mix. Ultimately my goal is to acheive my MA in Museum Science from University of Washington, one of the few in the country that offers that specific degree.
I’ve worked in museums as a day job before and I must say that my own work benefited from the experience. A good museum is more than just a warehouse…it can be a think tank, library,classroom,social hub and multi-media center as well. I found that the daily company of others passionate about art stoked my creative fires.
I truly believe that my experience as a working artist could be of benefit…and no, I’m not planning on stopping my own work. The prime word here is AND.
