MFA Visiting Artists Series at WestConn

Pat Lindgren, Artists Rep. will speak Tuesday, March 8 at 11:00 a.m. in Viewing Room 1 in the basement of White Hall on the Midtown Campus. Pat Lindgren is president of Lindgren and Smith inc., a New York agency that represents 50 illustrators. Ms. Lindgren was educated as a fine artist at University of Michigan and Cooper Union. After graduation, she worked as a photographer’s assistant and silkscreen printer. In her printmaking work, she collaborated on limited editions with such artists as Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Motherwell and Claus Oldenburg. She has been representing illustrators for the last 25years. She views the agent/artist relationship as a partnership. "My job is to present the artist's work in the best possible way. I connect artists with new clients, and reconnect with old clients every day. My work can be as simple as writing up the assignment and making sure that the terms are clearly spelled out and agreed on, or as complex as writing and reading contracts that can have very long term effects of the artist's income. In the end though my job is to make sure that both the client and the artist are happy.”
