Adri is on a mission to tell stories of women who have made history. She does so through her art, her teaching, and her speaking.
She is especially interested in shining a spotlight on women of color that have been overlooked in our history books.
In this episode of the podcast, I asked Adri about her work, her teaching, and her activism.
Less than one month ago, Adri was asked to design and direct the Black Lives Matter street mural in front of the Colorado State Capitol building. She selected the words Black Lives Matter Remember This Time for the mural. We discuss those words, as well as the symbolic colors she chose and how she involved community members in its making.
I also asked Adri what steps white artists can take to be helpful right now.

This episode is sponsored my signature business-building program for artists, the Art Career Success System.
All of the lessons you learn in the Art Career Success System are tasks you will address repeatedly throughout your art business and career—like rewriting your artist statement, submitting exhibition proposals, developing content, and nurturing your connections.
In the ACSS you will build a strong foundation that will last throughout your career.
