Beth Pickens reminds us that art makes us want to be alive. It lets us
know that we are not alone in this world no matter how isolated we feel.
And in this oppressive political climate, art is more important now than
ever.

Written in the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election and drawing
from Pickens’s extensive background in art fundraising and consulting,
Your Art Will Save Your Life empowers emerging and established artists
alike to balance activism and financial concerns while nurturing their own
creative processes.

From exercises designed to quiet inner critics to advice on navigating
institutional funding, Pickens helps artists create foundations for healthy
and sustainable expression no matter the medium. Reminding us art has
always been a tool of the resistance, Your Art Will Save Your Life
provides simple yet powerful lessons on how to keep creating at a time
when art is more necessary than ever.
