As Jamaal and Jennifer Jean write in their plan for the program, “Art world professionals are fearless and influential. From artists to entrepreneurs, we make our mark on the world through creativity and innovation — breaking barriers, reshaping industries, and connecting communities. But emerging artists need audiences. Through a candid and open conversation, we will offer insights from diverse backgrounds in the Boston art scene, answer questions, and share ways artists can navigate existing venues and create independent exhibitions.
