Spend a few minutes thinking of all the terrible stereotypes of artists and see how angry or sad you get. While you certainly may know a person or two who fits into those spaces, the stereotype is definitely not where you want to spend your time. Now think of all the terrible stereotypes of entrepreneurs; they’re just as wrong! Perhaps no two spaces are better fitted for each other than the arts and entrepreneurship.
This week, Ryan, Garreth, and Cody sit down to kick off a new series of interviews about the arts and entrepreneurship. There may be a lot of buzzwords and fake hustle that this topic encompasses, but in its truest sense, entrepreneurship is a common practice and one where artists and designers are already suited for success. Let’s meet a few!

Help Ken Gilbertson and Hatchback Gallery!
Our good friend Ken is trying to update Hatchback Gallery to better serve his new city and its art lovers. While he won’t let anyone touch the outside of the gallery, he does want to get a few new parts and build some new walls. We are helping Ken launch a GoFundMe; even a few bucks can be a big help!
