About the Juror: Philippa P.B. Hughes produces art-fueled projects to spark humanizing and empathy building conversations between people who might not normally meet. As a Social Sculptor and creator of the Pink Line Project, her practice is constructed around the principle that art can inspire a sense of awe and wonder about the world, which inspires curiosity, which inspires empathy. She has designed and produced hundreds of creative activations since 2007 for curious folks to engage with art and with one another in unconventional and meaningful ways. She leads CuriosityConnects.us, a partner in Looking For America a national series inviting politically diverse guests to break bread and talk to each other face-to-face using art as the awe-inspiring starting point for conversation.

About Client Raiser: Client Raiser is a business dedicated to helping artists to increase their client volume and the visibility of their art. Since 2014, Client Raiser’s Principal, Danielle Glosser, has worked with over 130 artists across the country in support of their professional goals. Danielle’s expertise in strategic planning, project management, research, writing, and networking comes from years of working and building relationships in the private, nonprofit, and government sectors on social justice issues from inner-city schools in Oakland, California to The White House. These professional opportunities — coupled with her personal belief that the arts are central to igniting conversation and enhancing human understanding — moved her to help artists with the business elements of their practice and to share their work with the world. Emerging and established artists alike begin with Client Raiser’s in-depth interview process, which results in a tangible assessment of their art practices and concrete next steps for advancing their careers.
