Follow these two artist in a 21st century documentary as they discover what can come with a drive to create.
Are you scared to get out of college with a fine arts degree and no idea what to do with it? Lauren Carli and Ashley Goodwyn are hoping not to be in that situation in two short years. An Artist Drive is a journey across the United States for a few weeks that will allow these two artist and donators to ask fellow artist how they survive the big bad world.
They will be starting in Alabama, hoping to reach the West Coast and then circle back north to New York, jumping from small places to even smaller places to find artists' studios. These adventures will be placed online with interviews of the artist and photos. It's like an interactive documentary for the 21st century! Followers will be able to suggest places to go, people to talk to and questions to ask. Lauren and Ashley will be like the puppets of the internet.
To Start off their journey they have found a few artist to talk to and will be stopping in Jackson, MS; Oklaholma City, OK; and Royal, AR. This is just the beginning of the artist that will lead the way to understanding what a fine arts degree can do. So if you don’t know what to do with that degree that you are hoping to get or have already achieved, follow them and find out. This journey will show what others have done with their desire to create. While making it fun for the internet viewer to follow along.
Of course with gas prices being so high, and food being a necessity, they need your help. Please donate to this adventure of self-exploration and help them pull out of the drive way. They are looking at a minimum of 1,000 dollars to survive in gas but 1,500 will give them the ability to eat three meals a day.
