Open for Business AEI Cohort Exhibit, Oct. 9-Nov. 7, 2020

October 22 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Open for Business

Open for Business showcases art by the most recent participants in the Artist as an Entrepreneur Institute at Summit Artspace. AEI is a partnership among Summit Artspace, Arts Cleveland and the Burton D. Morgan Foundation which funds the annual program.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS IS WHERE THEY WANT TO BE

AEI is open to individuals who are interested in or are already becoming entrepreneurs in the creative arts, including but not limited to visual art, music, theatre, dance, and writing.  Participants receive foundational business knowledge and hands-on training as part of the curriculum in this multi-week course.

Artists also have the opportunity to meet with and learn from successful creative entrepreneurs in Akron and the surrounding area. In addition to the class curriculum, participants receive the benefits of a supportive peer group and the exchange of unique perspectives on growing their creative business.  The Open for Business show is the capstone project for the 2019-2020 cohort that concluded at the beginning of the global pandemic.
