I'm collecting quotes and anecdotes from people working in art. The field is massive and the opportunities after art school seem countless. Here's the first contribution by Molly Roberts, a graduate of the University of Maryland, where she studied Photography:

- I do think the digital age is the age of visual communication, so the more sophistication and knowledge you have about the history of the visual medium, the more suited you are for the workplace of the future. Also, there is a lot of entrepreneurial thinking in the art world. That's extremely useful in the 21st-century workplace! -
