Karen Whitman’s bold, captivating block-print cityscapes shift the viewer’s perspective on urban environments, transforming the classic “love-hate” relationship with the city into an affinity for the human side of the concrete jungle.

Business Objective

Increase prices, attract high-end galleries and collectors, and boost name recognition by securing a solo exhibition at an art museum by 2022 and obtaining media coverage and reviews. Have two additional solo exhibitions by December 2024.

  • Compile a list of strategically important American art museums and curators.
  • Prepare letters to curators to propose solo exhibitions and print donation.
  • Prepare flash drive with images, print list, and resume.
  • Send materials and follow up with emails or calls.
  • Leverage these relationships via print sales in museum shops, and talks/demos.
