Please join Anna Ogier-Bloomer (MFA Photo ’11) for this panel discussion at SVA on April 6th—free and open to the public!
This panel discussion will focus on artists who are also parents are able to balance time with their children along with devotion to their studio practice. Artists Scott Alario, Qiana Mestrich, and Leah Bedrosian Peterson, along with moderator and artist Anna Ogier-Bloomer, will discuss the challenges faced by artist-parents, methods for increasing inclusion and awareness of issues, and ways in which parenthood has impacted each panelist’s practice. We will investigate the altered artist identity of those with children, how it shifts, and how we see ourselves in comparison to how others view artists with children. These three artists on this panel exemplify the ways in which artists and parents can manage both, and, in the process, make great contributions to art making and contemporary discourse.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
