JadaTalks Presents: : Plugged into Virtual World of Art

Miami Art Week Presents:
Plugged into Virtual World of Art presented by JadaTalks

The internet is the only platform an enterprising artist needs to sell their works in the 21st century. Beyond graphic design, many artists now create both digital art pieces and artwork that references internet culture. Furthermore, many young artists today are digital natives that have always lived in a hybrid socialization structure that incorporates both online and in person interaction- making internet culture a universal reference point for this new generation of artists.

Tune in December 4 at 4 pm EST to hear from our guest speaker Dana Blickensderfer, Entrepreneur, Founder of Provoke ArtSpace & Teresa Wilkins, Ph.D., Director of The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art, during pre-recorded streaming art conversation.

International visual artist, editor, and entrepreneur. Graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelors degree in Mass Communication, with a focus in Public Relations. She is an alum from the The New York Studio School with a focus in Two-Dimensional Practice.
