Chad Person


Website

Iconoclastic artist Chad Person creates collages using U.S. bank notes. He lives in New Mexico and has taught numerous courses at the University of New Mexico.

“I always start from a place of personal conflict or observation.”


The JFK Library


Website

The JFK Library exhibits never-before-heard White House recordings that shed new light on U.S.-Soviet relations during Kennedy’s administration.

“The show pulls the President and his cabinet out of myth. Rather than iconic figures, they are real men grasping to make critical decisions on the fly.”


Magician Teller and Aaron Posner

Magician Teller and Aaron Posner discuss what first captivated them about directing Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

“I think Shakespeare would have used magic. Magic seems to me the most fundamental of art forms.”


“Art Night Live!”

At “Art Night Live!” high school students show off their talents in a one-night-only art competition. They have just four hours to create their masterpiece.

“It helps me relieve stress. You know, just sitting down and being able to draw something. It relaxes me. It helps me know that I have something in my life that I love.”
