I came across this story via Handful of Salt about Nikolas Weinstein Studios. They have been awarded a Export Achievement Award. Artists listen up… “the government has a department charged with helping American companies develop work overseas…the Commerce Department’s forte: acting as a cultural liaison to identify and arrange meetings with potential clients in unfamiliar places.”
Read Nikolas’s story about how the government has helped him to export 90% of his work while employing people with craft skills and art degrees in the Bay area (insourcing). The last remaining U.S. export – art.
