Join ArtTable for Careers in the Art World: Finding Your Path, a panel held as part of the 2017 Leadership Conference for Women in the Arts

ArtTable was founded in 1980 by a group of professional women in the visual arts to foster greater support, recognition, and opportunities among their peers. Today we are a national non-profit organization with a mutual support network of over 1,200 women who are leaders in the visual arts. Members expand their circle of colleagues, gain special access to art world events, and grow through professional development and mentorship opportunities. The Philadelphia Chapter of ArtTable was founded in 2014 and is dedicated to fostering connections among women working in the arts in the Philadelphia region and beyond.  The convening of this panel for the Moore Leadership Conference is part of this mission, as we are eager to promote opportunities for mentorship for women who are interested in exploring professional careers in the arts.

The presenters for the panel include three artists who will offer insights into the various pathways that led to their current careers, and a curator who will share her experience working with and acquiring work by contemporary artists.  Each participant will offer a brief introduction, after which the distinguished moderator, Moore College President Cecelia Fitzgibbons, will lead a discussion with the panelists and invite questions from Moore students to encourage a lively and engaging dialogue.
