Artworld Email List Advice

July 20, 2010

So you already have or you’re going to start an arts organization, profit or non-profit.  Great!  Here’s some advice: as soon as you open your doors you will get inundated with what in the literary world is called slush.  You will at some point end up talking to artists whom for whatever reason you’re just not interested in.  That’s how things go.

Here’s what NOT to do: when you solicit emails or Facebook messages from artists or other people but decide not to write them back, DO NOT PUT THEM ON YOUR MAILING LIST because that will drive them all different kinds of nuts and will end up getting you into trouble if someone you shrug off turns out to be loose a few bricks in the foundation.  Just an etiquette tip.
