Events

FCM took on the Arts Wrangler role for TEDxSomerville 2014, a 700-person event in an immense climbing gym. In six weeks from Call for Entries to showtime, FCM produced four simultaneous art shows integrated with live social media feed and in-crowd performances. With only a few hours and the help of 100 volunteers, 30 artists installed work including rigged installations 40’ high, interactive art, and projection mapped video. FCM returned in 2015 to help produce another TEDx.

Publications and Exhibits

Karen Christians, author and founder of two jewelry schools, wrote a book on the Jewelry of Burning Man, co-authored by Christine Kirsten. Karen asked FCM to write press releases, produce an hour-long TV interview about it, and assist in planning and running the Kickstarter campaign. When the book recently became a show at the Fuller Craft Museum, which helped lay the groundwork for the hugely successful “No Spectators” exhibit at the Smithsonian, FCM publicity helped to jam the place for the opening reception.

FCM co-curated a show with Nave Gallery with founder Susan Berstler called boXed, and did everything from soup to nuts (er, paint)
FCM got Percy Fortini Wright a solo show at top Boston SoWA gallery Rafius Fane

Contact

“We brought Jesa to Brooklyn to work with our group of 200+ artists as we prepared for Gowanus Open Studios. She facilitated 5 workshops about a variety of marketing topics for artists. First, her facilitation skills are wonderful and interactive and include audience participation, making the workshops worthwhile for the folks in the room. Second, her knowledge of the art world and how to approach a variety of situations and how to make the most of these situations was insightful and helpful. Many artists came to every single workshop, many implemented her suggestions, and many have followed up to work with her individually on their art marketing practice. Jesa’s experience and warm presence made this workshop series a huge success.”

Abby Graf Subak, Director at Arts Gowanus, Brooklyn
