On Monday, November 26, 2018, we hosted an orientation for this year’s Artist Peer Circle program participants. The Artist Peer Circle program is designed to provide artists a structured support system in an effort to help advance their professional development. The artists meet once a month for nine months and finish the program with a public event. Our first two cohorts of the year consist of one peer circle for visual artists and one for interdisciplinary artists.
