2017 was one hell of a year, right?
I was going to send out my usual tips, but sitting in my warm house (it’s sub-zero outside), with my cat curled up beside me, I’m in reflection mode and starting out the new year listening to my beacon: Brene Brown.
Here’s the quote that inspired me to write today:
" You can not take people professionally, where you are not willing to go personally...We are just one integrated person." - Brene Brown
It comes from this podcast, which I think every artist should listen to and talks about the integral relationship between creativity and being personal.
It’s a conversation happening through the lens of marketing which can feel deeply confronting for creatives and even Brene, a PHD who’s spent thousands of hours studying resilience and human nature, struggled deeply with her marketing and branding.
I love the parts about the messy middle where every artist must spend huge amounts of time as this is the creative process, and blending your creative life with your “other life,” a struggle we all face.
This was recorded a while back but it is still deeply relevant today, as so many women overcame shame and guilt to speak up in 2017.
I was trying to think of an actionable note to end this newsletter and in the spirit of getting personal here it is:
Over the years, Women in Music has become a special place I have gone to experience togetherness, share stories,and support, and I'm honored to be serving as an advisory board member.
If you have not heard of WIM, I deeply encourage you to check it out.It's not just for women we also welcome men and have many in the community.
Currently Women in Music represents over 4,000 women across 12 chapters and we are taking a stand in 2018 to move hard conversations forward that we face in the industry.
This is literally the best $50 you will spend. It will open you up to not only wonderful events in multiple cities around the world, but also to a built-in network where you can ask for anything you need, and it will remind you that you don't have to go it alone.
I do not get a toaster or a kickback for sharing this. I do get the deep satisfaction of inviting you to a community where you can connect, share, promote, and find allies, who will be at your fingertips in the new year.
Here's to more togetherness, more love, and to taking better care of one another in our industry in 2018.

Curated by Cecilia Brunson, Gabriela Rangel, and Susanna V. Temkin.
José Leonilson (1957-1993) came of age as an artist during the 80s generation in Brazil. What he shared with this diverse artistic milieu was the so-called ‘joy of painting,’ rediscovered in the years following the end of Brazil’s dictatorship. What separated him from his contemporaries was his personal way of working and his distinct aesthetic centered on raw emotional feelings, introspective musings, and private affairs.

BREAKFAST SEMINAR ON IMPACT INVESTING, DECEMBER 12, 2017
December 12, 2017Time: 8:00 AM to 10:30 AM
Impact investing can be defined simply as
investments "made into companies, organizations, and funds with the
intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or
environmental impact alongside a financial return." But
such a simple definition still leaves many unanswered questions, even more so
when applied to Brazil.
A diverse and distinguished panel, representing
bilateral institutions, NGO’s, asset managers, and entrepreneurs explore key
questions surrounding impact investing in Brazil:
What role does impact investing play in social
development? How impactful is it currently, and what is the expectation
over time? How are impacts being measured?
What are the roles of bilateral institutions,
foreign and domestic NGOs and traditional or new asset management firms in
Brazilian impact investing?
What is the role of the Brazilian government in the
process, how can it do more to promote impact investing? Could
regulations be improved to increase the volume of impact investments?
Who is actually providing the funds for impactful
investing? Family offices? Foundations? Foreign governments?
Private sector funds? Does debt play a role, or only equity?
What are the principal criteria and what is the
process behind identifying impact investments? Can investments be
differentiated between philanthropy, venture capital, and private equity?
Are there other meaningful categories?
Can investors who are looking to make a positive
difference with their investments really expect to also enjoy market
returns? What are the vehicles for doing so, both at the institutional
and individual level?
Who and what ype of funds are involved in impact
investing? Do they have external ratings? As an individual where can I go to
make Impact Investments?
We will address these and other questions with the

Tarsila do Amaral (Brazilian, 1886–1973) is a foundational figure in the history of modernism in Latin America. The first exhibition in the United States exclusively devoted to the artist focuses on her pivotal production from the 1920s, from her earliest Parisian works, to the emblematic modernist paintings produced in Brazil, ending with her large-scale, socially driven works of the early 1930s. The exhibition features over 130 artworks, including paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and other historical documents drawn from collections across Latin America, Europe, and the United States.
Born in São Paulo at the turn of the 19th century, Tarsila―as she is affectionately known in Brazil―studied piano, sculpture, and drawing before leaving for Paris in 1920 to attend the Académie Julian. Throughout subsequent sojourns in Paris, she studied with André Lhote, Albert Gleizes, and Fernand Léger, fulfilling what she called her "military service in Cubism," ultimately arriving at her signature painterly style of synthetic lines and sensuous volumes depicting landscapes and vernacular scenes in a rich color palette. The exhibition follows her journeys between France and Brazil, through Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, charting her involvement with an increasingly international artistic community, and her critical role in the emergence of modernism in Brazil: in 1928, Tarsila painted Abaporu, which quickly spawned the Anthropophagous Manifesto, and became the banner for this transformative artistic movement that sought to digest external influences and produce an art for and of Brazil itself.
The exhibition is organized by The Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago.
Organized by Luis Pérez-Oramas, former Estrellita Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and Stephanie D’Alessandro, former Gary C. and Frances Comer Curator of International Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago; with Karen Grimson, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Drawings and Prints, The Museum of Modern Art.
