Tieton Mosaic involved in Boston exhibition

  • Updated

TIETON, Wash. -- Tieton Mosaic is representing Washington in a multimedia exhibition in Boston featuring artists from across the country.

The multimedia exhibit at the Boston Center for the Arts, titled “Culture Hustlers: Artists Minding their Business,” was curated by Lucas Spivey, former executive director of Tieton Arts & Humanities. It is on display until April 8.

Spivey traveled the country in his Mobile Incubator, a 1957 Shasta camper, seeking out art business models. He most recently posted up in Florida and spent the summer of 2017 at the Boston Center for the Arts plaza.

Along with Tieton Mosaic, artists included in the exhibit are Beyond Buckskin (Turtle Mountain Reservation, Belcourt, ND), Derek Erdman (Chicago), Española Valley Fiber Arts Center (Española, NM), Kristin Farr (San Francisco) and Smith Shop (Detroit).

This inventive take on commerce and the contemporary American Arts Landscape is a showcase of inventive arts business models employed by makers working across the United States, according to a news release.

Spivey has been providing a roving location for business advice for arts and culture since he brought the vehicle into the service of art in 2016, the release said. He kicked off the Culture Hustlers podcast, which he will continue to develop throughout this exhibition by recording and streaming an interview with each artist, including questions posed by exhibition visitors.
