The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you. The Artist Date need not be overtly “artistic”– think mischief more than mastery. Artist Dates fire up the imagination. They spark whimsy. They encourage play. Since art is about the play of ideas, they feed our creative work by replenishing our inner well of images and inspiration.
For those in need of a suggestion for an Artist Date:
Visiting a map store (or the map and atlas section of a bookstore). I once was inspired to write an entire opera about Magellan based on a visit to a store filled with antique maps!
