As the heat of summer begins to ramp up, now is the time to recharge your energy and get to work finding opportunities to carry you through the next phase of the year. Artists are responsible for creating their own paths, which is why a regular part of your practice must be to seek out and apply for those programs, exhibitions, grants and more that can further your experience and exposure in the world. We bring you a handful each week to set you on the path to success, but it is up to you to take things to the next level. Be bold, apply often, and never let rejection be the reason you don’t keep trying.
