Art has always played a critical role in our society, whether providing a source of education or entertainment or helping us investigate how we see ourselves and interact with each other.
I appreciate the opportunity to share my thoughts on how art intersects with other areas of our society, as well as providing critical perspective on visiting artists, museum/gallery exhibitions, and art in the context of larger societal ideas.
