What Inspired You to Work in the Visual Arts? By THE NEW YORK TIMES

This summer, The New York Times is publishing essays by its critics about the moments or works that prompted them to write about the arts, along with stories from readers about their own epiphanies. Previously we heard from readers who work in television, classical music, dance, pop music and video games.

Next week, Holland Cotter will write about what set him on the path toward becoming an art critic for The Times. We want to hear from visual arts professionals about what inspired their careers.

Whether you’re a painter, a sculptor, a gallery owner, a curator, an art teacher, an administrator for an arts organization, a museum security guard or any other professional in the visual arts, we want to hear about the works of art or related experiences that led you to dedicate yourself to the field.

Please submit a comment below describing what you do and how an experience in the arts led you to your career. Keep submissions under 250 words.

We will present some of your stories alongside Mr. Cotter’s essay. We look forward to reading about your artistic inspirations.  http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/08/09/what-inspired-you-to-work-in-the-visual-arts/?smid=tw-nytimes
