Wall Street Journal Talks to SAIC for Advice for Artists

Advisors said that artists need to build networks, negotiate with galleries, and send handwritten thank you notes. Vicki Engonopoulos, Co-director, Career + Co-op Center at SAIC also shared her thoughts, recommending artists to "create their own exhibits in a 'pop up' gallery, a vacant storefront or empty building."
