Looking for Art Careers? Forget NYC- Try Buffalo
For Art Careers, Go North
If you’re looking at art careers, you should head for the city in New York – but not the one you’re thinking of. Artists are flocking to the hot new art scene, springing up overnight in a place that might not be on your radar- Buffalo, NY. On a recent trip, I took a look at what’s making this town such a hot destination for artists this minute, what the city is doing to help new up-and-comers with their art careers, and how you can take advantage before the word gets out.
What’s Your Hustle?
Let’s say the cubicle life just isn’t for you. Maybe all of your friends have been telling you you should start selling those cute knitted hats that you make on the side, maybe you’ve hit the flea market circuit with your handmade jewelry on the weekends, maybe you want to open up shop with a full-time pottery studio. If you’re serious about art careers, or even if you’re just looking for a side hustle, you know that the rural life is not going to cut it. Emerging artists need exposure, opportunities for networking and collaboration, a market, and an audience. That means the city.
If art careers are beckoning you, you might want to consider a look up north. Buffalo, who knew?
