Important jumps in every artist’s career are being featured in art magazines. These opportunities are always both amazing and scary, which is why it is important to prepare for the interview properly. You will want to make sure that you leave a good impression and that your art statement comes across.

Climate change is the most horrific threat our species has ever known: No matter how powerful you are or how much money you have, our transforming planet is a reckoning for every one of us. But there are degrees to this misery. If you’re perched in a Manhattan penthouse, the effects might not be immediately apparent (because you don’t care or aren’t paying attention, or both).
