Fame and celebrity have huge appeal for many artists and performers. How many times has the image of yourself receiving a Grammy cropped up in your mind after writing a kickass tune? How many times have you mentally walked the red carpet dressed to the nines or mind-jotted your acceptance speech at the Golden Globes? Fame is all around us and the famous are everywhere seemingly all at once: on television, the covers of magazines, charity galas, award ceremonies, radios, and advertisements. In this clinic, Sally Taylor and faculty member Livingston Taylor explore the impact fame has historically had on artists. Examine the pros and the cons behind fame’s tantalizing allure. Thoroughly assess your own goals and motivations when it comes to your artistic dreams and gather some techniques on how to sell yourself without selling your soul.
