Post image for Summer Camp: A Break For Taxes and Parental Sanity

I’m taking a brief summertime break from my AFC column in order to direct the summer programming at “camp mom.” I will be back in the new season with more tips and advice on taxes and personal finance for creative economy workers. In the meantime, in honor of all the AFC working artist parents out there, here’s a post on the tax credit that applies to summer camp.

Post image for This Week’s Must See Events: Yes, There Are Openings This Week!

We’re looking at another slow events week, which frankly is a needed change of pace from the insanity the art world puts us through nine months out of the year. I say this because “slow” means there are just enough awesome events for a person to actually see all of them. We’ve got Jaimie Warren’s opening at the Hole this Wednesday. If you’re not familiar with her work, think female George Kushar for the digital age. You don’t want to miss this. The Bronx AIM Biennial,opens this Thursday, and promises to bring together the most promising emerging talent in the city. (They usually disappoint, but we’re listing them regardless because HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL.) And last but not least there’s Polly Shindler “Retreat” at Ortega Y Gasset Projects, a show of quirky interior paintings we can’t wait to see in person. Hope to see you there!
