Miami Art Week may be over, but there’s still something to be gained from it. If you were unable to catch the “Women in Art” Symposium presented by Art Miami and the Rutgers Institute for Women and Art, check out this article on it. Beth Lipman, pictured above, spoke about her first sale to the Brooklyn Museum as a pivotal point in her career.
Beth Lipman, an artist whose work is showing at Art Miami, thinks there is still value in commercial aspects of art. Her first major sale to the Brooklyn Museum was a pivotal moment for her career.
“It wasn’t really about the money. It was this institution — they’re saying to me, ‘You’ve made something of significance of cultural value’,” Lipman says. “It gave me a doorway to walk through that felt powerful. It gave me some confidence at a point in my life when I did not have much in my practice.”
