Curator Sarah Urist Green left her office in the basement of an art museum to travel and visit a diverse range of artists, asking them to share prompts that relate to their own ways of working. The result is You Are an Artist, a journey of creation through which you’ll invent imaginary friends, sort books, declare a cause, construct a landscape, find your band, and become someone else (or at least try).

Much like being right-handed or left-handed, each of us has a dominant eye, corresponding to the dominant side of our brain. Once you learn the difference, you’ll gain fresh insights into how you perceive, think, and create. You’ll learn how to not just look but truly see. This remarkable guided tour through art history, psychology, and the creative process is a must-listen for anyone looking for a richer understanding of our art, our minds, and ourselves.
