Storrs Campus
The William Benton Museum of Art

The Artist's Studio: From Solitary Genius to the Studio System.

5 pm Reception with cash bar 5:30 Talk

Kevin Conley gives a witty and thought provoking observation of artists and their studios.

How much should the hand of artist be involved in the production of the actual objects of art? Can artists be happy having their sculptures made by fabricators in another state? Must they paint every inch of the canvas or can studio assistants fill in the busy background patterns, saving the more complex passages for the artists to do themselves?

Kevin Conley is a writer and editor who has covered contemporary art for The New Yorker, Vogue, New York Times Magazine, Wall Street Journal, and Town & Country, for many years.
