“The Artist as Culture Producer: Living and Sustaining a Creative Life” is a collection of essays by 40 visual artists. Edited by artist and educator Sharon Louden, the book describes how artists extend their practices outside of their studios. All of these contributors have impactful, artistic activities as change agents in their communities. Their first-hand stories show the general public how contemporary artists of the 21st century add to creative economies through their out-of-the-box thinking while also generously contributing to the well-being of others. Although there is a misconception that artists are invisible and hidden, the truth is that they furnish measurable and innovative outcomes at the front lines of education, the non-profit sector, and corporate environments.

21c Museum Hotel Nashville is honored to present this conversation with Louden and Deleget free and open to the public. Through this event, participants will learn about, lend voices to, and be inspired by the vast range of influence that visual artists exert on society – increasing our understanding and valuing of artists as culture producers today.
