i mentioned at last week's meeting that i had been speaking with a member of the Duluth Art Institute about what is required to be featured in the Depot.

Who would be interested in learning more about this? Would it be worth it to have someone from the Institute come speak to us at perhaps our next meeting?

There are not openings until Spring of 2010 at the soonest, so there would be plenty of time to prepare. Samples of work would be required along with an artist statement/ group statement/ etc.

To do something like this would be a serious and major commitment.

So, would it be worth their time to send a speaker to come tell us more about it?

Who's interested?

Can I be in even though I'm not a good enough photographer just yet? I know in a year I'll have something good! And it would give me some motivation.

it would seem that there is enough interest to arrange for a meeting. please ask the depot rep if they would be willing to address the group, or portion thereof.

CLARIFICATION:
all i'm asking for now is who would be interested in pursuing this to make it worth a member from the Art Institute's time to come talk to us.
I have no say over who would actually get to be in the show. That would be decided by the A. I. board.

It seems that your clarification simply restates the original.

Please clarify the clarification.

What specifically do you intend by "who would be interested in pursuing this"? It seems that everyone above has indicated... yep.

Do you have a task list? Are you calling for a sub-committee to meet?

Specifics are very useful, as it seems that I don't know what you are asking.

Rich- a few people's responses led me to believe that people were thinking that if we did pursue this that they would automatically be included in the show, and i just wanted to make sure people realize that that's not up to me to decide.

That's all. Just wanted to make sure everyone understands that now so that if things do move forward, and someone is not chosen, there are no hurt feelings.

Natalie I understood your post and your clarification, and I am interested in learning more about this.

Thanks for heading this up!

I, too, understood. My thinking was that I would express my interest now, knowing that the group and the AI would at some point in the future ultimately choose who is included. In the mean time, I'd hate to show up at a meeting where the AI person was going to speak and have the group wonder what the heck I'm doing there.
