CenterPoint Presents Artrepreneur Panel

University Park, IL–(ENEWSPF)– University Park, IL, November 6, 2008 – The CenterPoint for Entrepreneurs at Governors State University is hosting an Artrepreneur Panel on Monday, November 17. The event runs from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. and is part of CenterPoint’s week-long celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The event is designed to provide artist-entrepreneurs, sometimes referred to as artrepreneurs, with tips on making a living by marketing and selling their art. A panel, comprised of artists from various disciplines will share personal experiences, success stories, and lessons learned while pursuing their own entrepreneurial ventures.

Panelists include Geoff Bates, director of GSU’s Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park; Jeff Stevenson, adjunct art instructor at GSU; Javier Chavira, assistant professor of art at GSU; and Seth McClellan, assistant professor of media studies at Triton College.

“The idea of a starving artist is cliché, however, it’s all too often a reality. Artistic talent doesn’t necessarily translate into business acumen. But with the right knowledge and tools, it is possible for artists to be successful at their craft and in business,” said panelist Geoff Bates “Each of our panelists is willing to share their experience in addressing issues related to getting artwork in front of the public, whether it’s through production, exhibition, or in the case of Seth McClellan, broadcasting.”

For additional information and a full listing of Global Entrepreneurship Week events, contact The CenterPoint for Entrepreneurs at (708) 534-4929 or visit www.centerpointgsu.com.
