The Mosaic of Art explores the making and distribution of visual art by talking with artists, curators, webmasters, dealers, coaches, publishers, about their creative processes. Through both formal and informal interviews we engage the big themes: identity, memory, process, spirituality, etc. But we also talk about practical issues in an art professional's working life: tools and materials, organization, dealing with the business of making a living.
If this sounds like a conversation that you would like to take part in, please investigate the rest of the site, where you will find a wide array of interviews, generally arranged by locations and events. On www.blogspotradio.com/MosaicOfArt you can find recorded broadcasts dating back to December, 2009.
Additional informal interviews are collected on my Cinch page.
