Open to All: Anthony Guerrero and Red Tape Theatre

Sunday, March 25, 2018

Chicago is home to plenty of art - the Cloud Gate (which looks like a bean and nothing like a cloud), architectural marvels, and food so good it could be art (two words for you: deep dish). It’s also home to a diverse, thriving theatre scene that includes not only large, renowned theatres like Steppenwolf and the Goodman, but smaller theatres that specialize in bringing diverse works to audiences.

Building a Career in the Arts: Lisa Campbell’s Fascinating Journey

Thursday, March 8, 2018

by Jonah Dratfield

People tend to have a narrow concept of what it means to be an artist. They see dancers as people who dance, actors as people who act and singers as people who sing. To many people, if an artist is successful, it is primarily because they practiced hard and mastered their art form. But, in truth, a successful career as an artist generally requires a whole host of skills outside the practice of one’s art. These include an understanding of how to market one’s self, how to fundraise for a project, and how to manage finances. Actor, arts manager and AES graduate Lisa Campbell has a career that exemplifies this truth.
