History of The Artist Discussions…Jeff Rose and John Eastman, co-founders and Executive Producers of The Artist Discussions, were talking at a social event in July of 2018 and the subject turned to interviewing artists. They refined the idea into discussions in a open platform type of setting and decided to do three pilots to gain knowledge, understanding, and gauge interest in this type of publication. In August, the project commenced it’s first interview with publication in October of 2018. Additional interviews with artists are scheduled for November and December 2018.
