Gallery Soirée: Is Creativity the New Principium of Business?

The evening’s discussion with Matthew Mullarkey, PhD, the Doctor of Business Administration Program Director at USF, and Susan Johnson, Theo Wujcik’s widow, will be moderated by artist Shane Pendley.

In this discussion, Theo Wujcik’s creative process and the importance of creativity’s impact on the success of a business will be brought to the audience’s attention.

Matthew Mullarkey, who holds a PhD in Business Administration, will express his interest in the archival and documentation side of Theo Wujcik’s art. Dr. Mullarkey will tie in his research on the correlation between the creative arts and successful businesses.

Susan Johnson, the current keeper of Theo’s legacy, will provide an insight to Theo’s past. She will walk the audience through Theo’s inspirations and the process behind his artwork.

Shane Pendley, owner of Parus Solution Marketing and a successful painter, will be facilitating the conversation and adding his unique perspective on combining creativity and business to the dialogue.

Theo Wujcik, one of the Tampa Bay area’s best-known artists, will be the topic of discussion. Theo was prolific, experimental, and completely dedicated to art, producing an exceptional and eclectic body of paintings and fine graphic art (drawing and printmaking).
