Look at Art, Get Paid

A woman in red shirt and little long braids looking right with another person looking at her text in yellow as follows: It was really rewarding to be valued for an opinion, especially in a museum.  I think anytime you ask for somebody's critique it's like 'Hey that's a nice thin to be asked' I feel like my opinions were bing valued -- critic from RISD Museum Pilot
Join a live conversation about museums, art, and cultural accessibility with artists Maia Chao and Josephine Devanbu, the creators of “Look At Art. Get Paid.” — a socially engaged art project. LAAGP invites people (who usually don’t visit museums) to visit museums as guest critics of the art and the institution – and pays them.

Maia Chao, based in Brooklyn, teaches sculpture at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and Josephine Devanbu is an interdisciplinary artist based in Providence, RI.
Moderator Karen Kurczynski (UMass History of Art and Architecture) will reflect on the program as an inspiration for the 2019-20 UMass Campus Climate project "Making Art Yours" at the University Museum of Contemporary Art.
