MAP Artists Showcase
Initial Point Gallery
Meridian City Hall
The work of nineteen artists from every corner of the state of Idaho creating in a range of mediums comprises this exhibition of talented and imaginative artisans.
These artists undertook the work of digging deep to know themselves, to find that personal voice inside to help them achieve their artistic goals. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi said, “Thoughts create a new heaven,a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow.”
This show celebrates that newfoundflow, a new sense of focus and mastery, of daily rhythm and artistic ritual. Flow is distinct and personal to each but is based on an understanding that everything begins with the heart.
My Artrepreneur Program "Putting the face of business on the soul of art." Designed from the artist’s perspective, the My Artrepreneur Program (MAP) helps artists build sustainable businesses in art through intensive study and networking. Based on the values that learning should be accessible, flexible, affordable,collaborative, and useful, the program is a grounded and doable approach to making 35 tools for succeeding in diverse and changing markets.
The Idaho program is administered by the Idaho Commission on the Arts.
