So You Want a Career in the Arts? Q&A with Peter Mays


Peter Mays is an interesting fellow; I met him at a party that was, in part, thrown to raise funds for the art organization he heads, The Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA).

One might think that, as the executive director of the LAAA, Mays is surrounded in Monets, Manets, and Rodin scultures all day. However, the LAAA serves a broad cross section of artists of all mediums, career levels and socio-economic backgrounds, including those from low-income communities. So, it's not just the "big names."
