The Business Of Art + Design

May 02, 2011 10:44PM ● Published by Anonymous

Paul Reed Smith, founder of PRS Guitars, and Paul Miles ’91 (illustration), director of Private Stock, will deliver a keynote talk about their experiences as innovative artists and creative entrepreneurs in the guitar world. Both Smith and Miles have traveled the world and worked with artists, including Carlos Santana, Orianthi and Mark Tremonti, to “not only create the most beautiful and best playing guitar money can buy, but the best sounding,” according to Smith. Smith and Miles will perform during the event, and guitars will be on display. The Art of PRS coffee table book—a stunning collection of selected PRS Private Stock guitar, bass and acoustic models as seen through the lens of Japanese photographer Tomuji Ohtani—will be available at the signing, following the discussion. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions, as well as talk with Smith and Miles during the signing.

This event kicks off MICA’s new Master of Professional Studies in the Business of Art + Design program (more details here: www.mica.edu/business). A portion of the proceeds will be donated on behalf of PRS Guitars to Johns Hopkins Medicine Living With Cancer Resource Program.

When: Sunday, May 29, 7:30–9:30 p.m.

Where: Brown Center: Falvey Hall, 1301 W. Mount Royal Ave.

Price: Tickets: $15 general public; $5 MICA faculty, students and staff. Tickets can be purchased at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/164931
