John Nichols


One of New Mexico’s favorite writers and author of “The Milagro Beanfield War,” John Nichols, asks himself tough questions.

“So part of my art and my artwork I’ve felt the need to be polemical in a way that can really affect people’s feelings and really change the nature of how they view the system that controls us.”

John Backderf


Artist John Backderf knew Jeffrey Dahmer in high school and recently published a graphic novel called “My Friend Dahmer.”

“It’s kind of a fascinating tale of this young life that goes wrong as the adult world just stands there and either through an inability to see or indifference or incompetence … does nothing.”

Colin Matthes


Artist Colin Matthes turns solar energy into a fun, interactive, and thought-provoking display.

“I like that people spend all this time, and it becomes a super creative act to build something that you’re just going to destroy in this, like, amazing, super fast spectacle.”
