How to be an artist and a parent?
Greg Cook and Tim Devin (artists and parents, both) are gathering voices to discuss this very question. Two upcoming events geared towards creative folks (artists/musicians/you-name-it) who have kids will focus on the unique challenges of having children and an artistic career, and trying to make it all work.
The first event (free and open to the public) takes place at the Malden Public Library on Tuesday, May 12, 2015, 7 PM. It features three artists discussing how to juggle parent-/artisthood: James Montford (his mid-career survey, James Montford: Persuasions, 1990-2015, is on view at the Boston Center for the Arts through 6/21), Stacy Thomas-Vickory, and Paige Wallis.
Greg Cook and Tim Devin will serve as hosts for both events.
These events are just the beginning of the discussion. More about the events and the project at large at How to Be an Artist and a Parent.
