“SPEAK FOR YOURSELF”   (this is going to be outstanding)

…a conversation with Dough McCulloh and Meg Linton
Why be an artist? What does it mean to live your life as an artist? How does one live inside art? An artist and a curator pull back the curtain on current art practice. Expect a lively evening of secrets and revelations, warnings and cautions, startling flashes and wild statements. Part talk, part free-for-all
