Should YOU Join United Scenic Artists Local 829?

I just read an absolutely outstanding article on joining United Scenic Artists Local 829, written by Andrew Griffin, @afgld on Twitter.  I myself am a United Scenic Artists Local 829 member, in the category of Lighting Designer, of course!  I mean, I know I’m well-known for my illustrious costume designs for RuPaul and all, but my heart goes out to light.

If you’re deciding on whether or not to join up or try to take the test and join up, you need to read Andrew’s article.  Hands down.
