Curious Minds Festival // Jerry Saltz: How to Be an Artist




Art has the power to change our lives. Whether you love it, make it (or aspire to make it), how do you break through and just… get started? Let Jerry Saltz be your guide.

In How to Be an Artist, the Pulitzer Prize-winning art critic for New York Magazine offers an indispensable handbook for creative people of all kinds. From pursuing inspiration and navigating career challenges to simply finding joy in the work, join the witty and passionate Saltz as he reveals inspiring new ways to shed doubt and awaken your inner potential, using examples of artists ancient and modern. Lauded by cultural luminaries like Steve Martin, Cindy Sherman, Kim Gordon and David Chang, this classic-in-the-making opens a path for anyone who wants to lead a more creative life—and dedicate themselves to something they believe in.
