When art is your livelihood, you can’t afford not to take a look at the resources available to you through the Arts Business Institute (ABI). Rosen Group president Wendy Rosen founded ABI in 2002 as a practical source for the dissemination of business information for creative entrepreneurs.
Along with various workshops in marketing, wholesaling, retailing and booth design, ABI is expanding its educational outreach to include 100 short online videos on the video-sharing site, vimeo. The videos include mini-workshop clips on aspects of running a small business, plus advice from artists, luxury retailers and museum store and gallery buyers. The clips are ideal for artists with busy schedules: they can opt to choose when they want to access the information, and watch them as often as they like. Artists can click on http://vimeo.com/rosengrp to view selections.
