Art/Work Connections is a monthly series of seminars presented by Life Is Art featuring business professionals speaking on a variety of topics vital to the success of working artists. This month we are covering a subject that causes many problems for artists, contract negotiation. We know that many artists have gotten ripped off at various times. Many of these situations could be avoided with just simple agreements.

Most artists have no training in legal issues and often struggle in understanding complex contracts. Many artists do things without any sort of contract, opening themselves up to fraud and theft. Come learn how to how to read a contract and create the proper language to safeguard your rights. We will break this down and make it easy for everyone!

Planet Kitchen Food and Wellness Tour

Planet Kitchen celebrated its maiden voyage of its Planet Kitchen Healthy Organic Food, Drink and Wellness Tour, highlighting a growing trend towards healthy and sustainable living in South Florida. It also showcased local farms, markets, restaurants and businesses who make real food and drinks to heal us naturally from the inside out. 

Planet-Kitchen-138

We started our tour at Trio Studio, located in between Wynwood & the Design District (Midtown) in Miami. There we had a wonderful grounding meditation to start our journey followed by  an awesome demonstration of Budokon Yoga, AcroYoga, and Aerial Yoga.   Tour participants had an opportunity to get in on the action and try out AcroYoga for themselves.  It was really beautiful to participate and watch.

Afterwards, the folks at Sambazon shared a refreshing fruit, mint and frozen acai concoction called an “acai bowl.”  This superfood charged treat is also non-GMO, Fair Trade and b-certified. We enjoyed it so much, we purchased a bottle that same week.  I’m sure it will be a permanent part of our refrigerator as we support conscious companies and healthy nutrition.  [Read more...]

El éxito de cualquier negocio es simplemente el reflejo de el éxito, actitud y liderazgo de las personas que lo conforman. Basado en esta premisa, este libro nos plantea un gran interrogante: ¿Es posible desarrollar un plan de éxito para nuestro proyecto de vida empleando la misma metodología que utilizaría un arquitecto para trazar los planos de un edificio? El Dr. Camilo Cruz no sólo cree que es posible y beneficioso diseñarlo, sino que en esta nueva obra nos enseña cómo hacerlo.

Photographs of Life Is Art presents Art/Work Connections #21 Understanding Grants for Artist with Joshua Kingston at Eleazar Delgado Studio on 7/15/14

Life Is Art  presents Art/Work Connections #21: Understanding Grants for Artist with Joshua Kingston at Eleazar Delgado Studio Tuesday, July 15, 2014. Art/Work Connections is a monthly series of seminars presented by Life Is Art featuring business professionals speaking on a variety of topics vital to the success of working artists. This month we covered  Understanding Grants for Artist.

About Joshua Kingston:
Joshua Kingston was raised in a military family, moving often and quickly learned to adapt and connect with people. He studied Theater, Music and Literature in college and has worked as a Vet Tech and a Software Developer before settling in to his true calling, writing. Always feeling the need to have more knowledge, he went back to school to obtain a Masters in Theology.

Today, he writes helps artists verbalize their art into statements and galleries develop catalog material while his passion is the challenge of grant writing for both individual artists, projects, and small/mid-sized Arts organizations.

About Eleazar Delgado Studio:
Originally conceived at our home, Eleazar Delgado Studio has always been the artist’s creative space. The idea grew into a gathering place for our friends, mostly artists in their own rights, to showcase their current work and preview concepts. We made it official in 2010 when we opened a public space in Wynwood. Today in addition to being Eleazar’s personal art studio, we host local talents and leaders who need a professional environment to showcase, educate, and enrich the community at large.
