PODCAST EPISODE 003: VISUAL ARTIST, JENIFER WOFFORD!

Visual artists, take heed! The latest podcast features international artist and longtime educator, Jenifer Wofford! If you’re local to San Francisco, you may have recognized her work gracing the Market Street kiosk posters, or you may know her also as a member of the renowned Mail Order Brides art collective. Of the many gems that she offers in this episode, Jenifer shines light on:

  • The importance of artist adaptability; Curating your income streams
  • The secret advantages of the privileged in the art world
  • The concrete benefit of pursuing professional development (PD) and mentorship
  • Enjoying art outside of your own genre to keep your eyes fresh
  • And being “googleable”

“The ongoing crisis that happens in art departments, in our art programs, in art schools is that while they still do an excellent job of training young people how to make strong work, they do an absolutely appalling job of training them in how to get that work shared with other people and how to feel unconflicted about it.” –Jenifer K. Wofford
