Los Angeles, CA – The Clark Hulings Fund (CHF), equips visual artists to be self-sustaining entrepreneurs by providing them with business training and support, is bringing its message of artist empowerment to Artexpo New York with a presentation on Friday April 20, at 2:45pm, at Pier 94, 711 12th Ave, New York, NY 10019.
The panel, entitled “Mightier Marketing for Visual Artists,” will be given by Clark Hulings Fund Marketing and Education Director Daniel DiGriz.

“We are so excited to work with Artexpo New York,” notes Hulings, CHF’s founder. “We love that they help hundreds of established and emerging artists get more exposure, and that they are also committed to supporting them with the business side of art. We are happy to partner with them on this.”
