Pedigree was an open conversation about art, money, and the role of college level art education. Participating artists discussed their educational experiences, artistic processes, artistic philosophy, as well as how art school influenced their practice and effected their finances.
Pedigree was held at PLACE PDX, which was located in the atrium at the Pioneer Place Mall in Portland, Oregon. Pedigree was free and open to the public. It attracted artists, curators, teachers, students, prospective students, collectors, and consultants. There were four sessions in total. I organized and promoted the events, and acted as the moderator.
