Introducing Your New NATA 2016 - 2018 Treasurer
When not writing, I much enjoy hanging out with my beautiful family, traveling, reading sci-fi, collecting comic books, collecting stoneware pottery, playing video games, and dabbling in a little art-making now and again.
My favorite artist right now is Wangechi Mutu. If you haven’t seen her work, I strongly encourage you to do so. It’s beautiful, frightening, and oh-so poignant.
Last Chance! Due Today, June 15th!

In this video, students at Lincoln’s Southwest High School ask ceramicist Eddie Dominguez what his favorite piece of art is, and why. HIs answer is surprisingly emotional.
