    Persistence: Your Most Powerful Creative Tool

    A free lecture by Peter Clothier based on his new book, Persist:  In Praise of the Creative Spirit in a World Gone Mad With Commerce.  This lecture addresses the predicament of creative people of all kinds--artists, writers, actors, musicians, dancers--in a cultural environment in which success is most often measured in commercial terms, and where it is increasingly difficult for even the most talented to get a hearing. ...

    A free lecture by Peter Clothier based on his new book, Persist:  In Praise of the Creative Spirit in a World Gone Mad With Commerce.  This lecture addresses the predicament of creative people of all kinds--artists, writers, actors, musicians, dancers--in a cultural environment in which success is most often measured in commercial terms, and where it is increasingly difficult for even the most talented to get a hearing.  In this context, we'll be thinking specifically about the benefits for the artist of a disciplined mind and a commitment to practice--how to acquire and develope these qualities, and how to apply them to creating a life in art that will survive the vicissitudes of an art world dominated by market concerns.

    A former art school Dean (Otis Art Institute, Loyola Marymount University) and a nationally-published art writer, Peter Clothier brings the perspective of long experience and an empathy for the creative passion.
