What are the essential elements that sustain a creative life over time?  This series engages UTEP Faculty Artists in candid conversations about their creative lives in an informal setting. The discussions are open to the public but will be lead by upper level art students enrolled in Professional Practices and preparing to graduate and launch their own careers in the arts. You are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch as well as your own questions and ideas about the topics presented.
