How does an unwieldy, artist-driven project find a permanent home, develop a board and become a non-profit organization, and plan for a sustainable future? These tricky topics, plus others, will be discussed by artists Jaimie Warren and Matt Roche, the co-founders and co-directors of Whoop Dee Doo.
Founded in 2006 and based in Kansas City, Missouri, Whoop Dee Doo is a non-profit, faux public access television show facilitated by a legion of artists and volunteers. Their live, edgy shows promote creativity, learning, and social tolerance, and have been featured at the Smart Museum of Art, The University of Chicago; Kemper Museum of Art, Kansas City; PICA, Portland; and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia, among others.
SeminArt is a monthly program expressly designed to meet the educational and professional development needs of todayâ€™s artists. Thanks to generous funding by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, SeminArt is served-up FREE and for ALL.
Whoop Dee Dooâ€™s presentation is co-sponsored by Miami Dade College â€“ Art Gallery System.
