Sarah Urist Green Hosts a Virtual Happy Hour for Artists via Instagram (4/19)

Share this story with your world:

Sarah Urist Green, author of YOU ARE AN ARTIST: Assignments to Spark Creation (Penguin Books), hosts a “You Are an Artist” virtual Happy Hour, featuring photographer Alec Soth, via Instagram on Saturday, April 19, at 4:00pm (ET).

Ms. Green left her office in the basement of an art museum to travel and visit a diverse range of artists, asking them to share prompts that relate to their own ways of working. The result is YOU ARE AN ARTIST, a journey of creation through which you’ll invent imaginary friends, sort books, declare a cause, construct a landscape, find your band, and become someone else (or at least try). Your challenge is to filter these assignments through the lens of your own experience and make art that reflects the world as you see it.

She is also the creator, curator, and host of The Art Assignment, an educational video series produced in partnership with PBS Digital Studios that focuses on the creative process and the act of making.
