Keep your art business strong with an updated Instagram strategy.
It can feel weird to post something that is unrelated to COVID-19 or, more currently, social injustice right now.

Consider changing up your usual social media posts to address issues and share resources and posts. Adjust your messaging, but don’t go silent. Click here for a few ways that you can use your Instagram to engage with your audience right now.

Please join us for a Career Conversation and an Arts Industry Reading Discussion with Elizabeth Warfel ’19. Elizabeth will discuss her on-campus experiences and summer internships related to the Arts and will share advice on how to get started in the industry.
Based on Elizabeth’s recommendation, we will also discuss two articles titled “With Galleries Closed, a Moment for Net Artists to Shine” by Andrew Dickson and “The First AI- Generated Portrait Ever Sold at Auction Shatters Expectations, Fetching $432,500 – 43 Times Its Estimate” by Eileen Kinsella. This is a great opportunity to meet an alum working in the Arts and learn about the current trends in the industry!
Elizabeth Warfel graduated from Middlebury in 2019 with a double major in Art History and French, and significant coursework in Studio Art. After graduating she interned at Christie’s NYC in the Estates, Appraisals, and Valuations Department and then the Impressionist and Modern Art Department. Since then she has been working for the Contemporary and Digital Art Fair (CADAF) doing their marketing and social media.

There are endless opportunities for artists who know where to look.
Artwork Archive scoured the internet and compiled the best opportunities for 2020—so you only have to look in one place.
Each year they send their team on a mission to find the best opportunities, artist grants, and calls-for-entry for artists. From that, they created a list of the top international open calls, residencies, fellowships, and awards that they believe will benefit artists during the upcoming year.
The complete list is broken down into four categories: grants, residencies, calls-for-entry, and opportunity sites.
