I have been accepted into an artist residency program in St. Louis at the CET building in the Cortex Corridor which is the tech startup and biotech center of the city's commerce. The city recognizes that artists and entrepreneurs share much in common and want to see what synergy may come of the opportunity. I overlap both realms and love having an office with conference room, a stocked maker space, a kitchen with a steady supply of snacks, let alone the fastest and most reliable internet in the city. I will be working out of the shared space for the next nine months. I have not let go of my home office and spend at least 1-2 days a week working here for the sake of my dogs. (Don't say it, I spoil them...I know.)
Thank you to the Regional Arts Commission for making this residency possible.
