From Library Journal:

Wojak (director of career svcs., Parsons The New School for Design) and Miller (photography, Parsons) collaborate here to provide guidance on the challenging goal of having an artistic career. Structured to help develop an overall strategy, the text is filled with ideas, resources, and short interviews with those in the field, including Chuck Close and Tim Gunn. Among the many topics addressed are the gallery scene, alternative spaces, community building and networking, and teaching. This is a practical handbook designed for artists who are often disenfranchised from the usual career advice. With sections on setting up and maintaining a studio practice and career planning and the job search, the authors also discuss copyright, promotion, and taxes. Verdict This valuable career resource will help artists open their minds to a variety of opportunities and form goals. Recommended. If you have no other books on the subject, Marysol Nieves's Taking AIM!, reviewed above, makes a good companion.-Barb Kundanis, Longmont P.L., CO (c) Copyright 2011.
