Thursday January 17th, 2019


6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.


Photography & Digital Arts, Flower City Arts Center, 713 Monroe Ave., Rochester, NY

Please join us for a FREE special lecture series on the Art of Being an Artist by AIR Megan May.

While an Artist is many things, they are first and foremost a human being on a unique journey. Artists, as it is for all creatives, have the responsibility of simultaneously creating a culture and questioning culture. Art should make you feel, think and respond to the world in a different way after encountering it. Artists are healers, thinkers, and visionaries. In this series, Photo AIRS, Megan May, will take an in-depth look at several aspects of her own theory and practice of the Artists place in society today.

The artist needs community and the community needs artists. Period.

Please join us for an evening focused on the importance of collaboration, community and social interaction for a healthy art practice.
