Best Gallery Series

MAP’s Thirty: 30 Creative Minds Under 30 monthly speaker series

Artist’s talks in the gallery seem to be more than a passing phase, and it’s too bad because they are tediously boring! This is due to a just-winging-it approach where artists ramble indiscriminately about their inspiration, ideas, and whatever else comes to mind. Wouldn’t it be great if young artists were given the opportunity to practice their speaking skills with mentorship from professional curators and experienced artists? MAP’s new Thirty: 30 Creative Minds Under 30 is just such a program. Initially conceived by Michelle Gomez, a former programming committee member, MAP designed the speaker series for all types of young artists to hone their speaking and editing skills, to give a public talk at a respected venue, and receive feedback from professionals in the business. The events feature three artists at a time and have been hugely popular, bringing in crowds of listeners and enthusiastic reactions. MAP is planning a second installment for 2014.
