Virtual Studio Chats: Paths Less Traveled

Virtual Studio Chats poster
Hosted By:  The Hyde Collection
When: Wednesday, May 12, 2021 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Where:  Zoom

What does it mean to pursue a passion for art in today’s dynamic work environment? Is a contemporary art career confined to paint and canvas? In support of the 30th Anniversary of the High School Juried Show, this breakout discussion series challenges the notion of the starving artist to celebrate the range of empowering, impactful creative arts applications a young person – or anyone looking for a career change – may pursue.

Join us virtually each Wednesday evening in May to discover the unique, inspiring journeys taken by an exciting array of speakers who creatively incorporate artistry into their daily work-life. From international textiles to environmentally-conscious caskets, there are no limits to what these candid conversations will explore!


  • Registration is complimentary and limited to 100 attendees per event.
  • There is a separate registration form for each virtual event – see individual registration links on website page.
