What artist/musician (living or deceased) would you like to have dinner with and where would you take them? I had the chance to meet and talk with mixed media artist Sabrina Ward Harrison a few years ago and would like the opportunity to do so again, but maybe this time at my home.
Love about the Indy arts scene: The variety of art venues, there's something for everyone and how Indy artists are so approachable.
When you are not out crusading for the arts, where can we find you? In my studio at the Harrison Center for the Arts... crusading for my own art.
