Before the start of the final, you must have completed:
1. Your website, with all tweaks to portfolio, artist statement, and resume made.
2. Your fleshed out 5-year plan, with names and contact info for all the details (MFA programs, residencies, exhibit spaces, publishers, etc., you plan to approach), BOTH posted to this class blog, and printed out.
3. A one-paragraph statement on why it is important (or at least interesting) for a culture to have artists. Or, if it makes more sense to think of the question this way: what's the use of being an artist? Have a PRINTED COPY of this for the final.
