In this Artist Exploration, Charlie discusses some paths that are not BFA-MT arrows pointed straight at the Broadway Bulls eye. As we know (and will continue to explore), there are a lot of different ways to reach that goal of success, and a lot of versions of what success looks like for different artists.
Ryan and Charlie chat about getting a MFA and a BA, finding and following bliss, failure, resilience and how access has made the world smaller.
