Welcome to Five-Dots

Five-Dots was a Midwest-based bi-monthly digital publication working to interview and document local artists, curators, gallerists, architects, and designers in the region about their studio and work process as a paradigm to look at bigger issues such as the financial, social, and mental impacts of being a creative entrepreneur. Five-Dots intended to introduce the public to creative entrepreneurs at various stages within their careers in hopes that we would contribute to the destigmatization of a career in the arts or non-profit sectors.

Our collaborative project ended in January of 2019, but this site serves as a documentation and preservation of the interviews that took place from September of 2017 until January 2019.
