Swimming with the Big Fish: Marketing your Artwork Globally
Ray Troll has made a good living with his art for a very long time, and since he lives in out-of-the-way Ketchikan, Alaska, it’s not difficult to draw comparisons to the many fine artists who struggle making a living with their own art right here in New Mexico. As a public service to those artists, the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is collaborating with the City of Albuquerque to bring Ray Troll to the Kimo Theatre on the evening of Friday, May 13th at 7:00 PM. Swimming with the Big Fish: How to Market Your Art Globally, Ray’s talk covers the practical realities of making a living as a full-time artist.
