Published in January 2012, the 2nd edition of Business of Art: An Artist’s Guide to Profitable Self-Employment provides you with key knowledge, tools and resources to help you advance your art practice. This book reflects CCI deep commitment to the artistic community and our belief that knowledge is power.
“The Business of Art’s career path and personal planning chapters will help the millions of self-employed artists, here and abroad, see themselves as entrepreneurs and proactively reach out for the tools they need. Our Arts Economy Initiative’s surveys and interviews with thousands of American artists over the past decade reveal that great gains in aesthetic quality and economic security can be achieved with the right know-how. This book should be prominently stowed on every artist’s reference shelf.”

This book will be a terrific help to any artist at any age. For those who like philosophy as a driving force, there are leading questions to help one find or rediscover essential vision. For those who like grids and worksheets, the book abounds with little treasures to help organize artistic thought in relation to business practice. For those who have shied away from being direct about money or legal issues, it is all spelled out here so that no one needs to be afraid. In fact, the book would be of use to anyone wishing to strike out on an independent path of entrepreneurship and satisfying work.
