While anger rises, frustration mounts, antagonism increases, and negativity and naysaying dominate the national news. . .

Maybe art is the answer?

Join us for an evening with Ari Weinzweig, celebrating the release of his latest writing, "The Art of Business." Ari will share his latest thinking on business while you munch on light bites, engage in riveting conversation with other local professionals and get your very own copy of his latest work!

ABOUT "The Art of Business":

What would happen if everyone approached their lives as artists? Put together their communication as if they were poets? Designed their spaces—small and large—as if they were architects? Listened to others like a musician? What if business leaders looked at their organizations as if they were making art for the ages instead of being just vehicles for making money? What if everyone—not just those who society calls “creatives”—is capable of turning what they do every day into amazing art?

This is what Ari Weinzweig, co-founding partner and CEO of Zingerman’s Community of Businesses in Ann Arbor, Michigan, explores in his newly-released pamphlet, “The Art of Business: Why I Want to Be an Artist.”

The approach Ari examines in the pamphlet could well be the future of the business world. Her argues, those who are most able to come at their work and their lives from the standpoint of an artist—or poet, musician, sculptor, etc.—are those that will lead the most interesting and rewarding lives and do the innovative work that will set the pace in every industry.
