As of December 2012, this blog is being maintained as an archive. All future posts will be made at www.mskianga.wordpress.com. The highlights of the past 7+ years since I first left Wall Street law to embark on an independent career in “business and patron development for the arts” are all recorded here.
I have imported posts with reasonable success from my first WordPress blog, “Get (A)rt Life!,” and Blogspots for “The Instress of Art” and “Art With Your Own Eyes.” There is a long stretch of video blog entries from early 2010 that auto-posted from Posterous, so that’s a bit of a mess. Please forgive any broken links, empty posts and bad formatting.
In November 2012, I joined the staff of the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in historic Peekskill, New York as a program and social media consultant for Peekskill Project V. In 2013, I will again lead private tours for collectors and young museum patrons at the Moving Image Contemporary Video Art Fair, lecture about social media and the contemporary art world for a third year at the Bronx Museum’s AIM Program and hope to participate again in some capacity with currents 2013: The Santa Fe International New Media Festival. From Beacon, NY, I present experimental conceptual exhibitions in collaboration with artists through Kianga Ellis Projects and keep notes on philanthropy and art travel at Art Evangelism.
While my use of the social Web evolves with the times, a record of my social media accounts past and present can be found on the sidebar at right. I am most active on Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram and Tumblr. See you on the socials! Cheers, Kianga
