Beyond Housing spots | Communication Arts

Responses by Bailey & Co.

Background: A wealth of research in recent years clearly shows how the St. Louis, Missouri, region’s longstanding challenges—from troubling crime rates to failing schools, slow economic growth and the region’s long, steady decline in national prominence—are directly tied to the area’s high concentrations of poverty, which is heavily linked to zip code and color. Once and for All is an effort to bring the whole of St. Louis together to invest in transforming and strengthening these areas and their residents to create a stronger, more equitable and prosperous city for all.

The effort is led by Beyond Housing, a nationally recognized community development organization with an innovative model for transforming under-resourced communities. The primary audience for the effort is large individual donors, corporations and foundations.

Juxtapoz Magazine – RE/STRUCTURE: An Interview with Bisco Smith

To celebrate the launch of new gallery OMNI, New York based artist Bisco Smith brings his dynamic, calligraphic mark-making to London’s West End. With a new body of work developed during lockdown, Bisco considers what it means to RE/STRUCTURE. Navigating extreme isolation, becoming a father; to managing the overwhelming swell of news, power and politics as our boundaries readjust to their new realities. Through music and art, Bisco celebrates movement and meditation to ruminate on our shared experience with moments of transition. 

Charlotte Pyatt: RE/STRUCTURE! Tell us a little about this new exhibition. 
Bisco Smith: So the show is titled RE/STRUCTURE. It’s a creative response to everything the world has gone through the past few years. I haven’t done a show since 2019, my wife and I have just had a baby. It was strange times going into lockdown, as it was for so many.

How to Create a Simple Email Marketing Plan

Psst. The following quote applies to your artist’s email marketing plan.

When you have written your headline, you have spent eighty cents out of your dollar.

– David Ogilvy

An email marketing plan for artists is an effective tool, but it’s still a numbers game. You probably don’t send enough. There are many reasons, and I get the why, but you can do better with the same effort or less than you put in now.

Sending once per month is risky because you can fall out of touch. A few misses on opens, and months have gone by with no connection between you and important clients, friends, and subscribers.

I recommend sending weekly, but I realize it’s not practical for most artists, so I split the difference and suggest sending twice monthly with occasional blasts. You can keep to that schedule if you follow my advice.
