Lecture: “Art without Compromise” by Wendy Richmond (Puerto Rico Museum of Art)


[Many thanks to Marta Mabel Pérez for sharing this item.] The Museum of Art of Puerto Rico celebrates the 10th anniversary of PROA (Programa de Asistencia al Artista)—the Assistance Program for Artists—with a lecture by Wendy Richmond, “Arte sin concesiones” [Art without Compromise]. Saturday, May 7, 2016, at 10:00am, at the Multipurpose Room-Department of Education, Museum of Art of Puerto Rico.

In her presentation, Richmond will describe, through their own work, the many factors affecting artists and their creative process. These factors include: the physical space in which we live and work; the technology we use; the culture around us; previous work we have created and forgotten; art that inspires us; relationships with family and friends; and collaborations that help us expand our own vision.

Richmond’s main objective is is to help us identify what we need to make your artwork stronger.
