ARTPRIZE The Containment, I Take The Controls And See What Happens[video]

This ArtPrize entry had a lot of buzz around it.  The video does not do it justice.  You HAVE TO see it in person, because feeling the experience is actually part of the whole thing. The artist who created it was nice enough to let me take the controls on Tuesday afternoon before I interviewed him about the piece. Check out the video after the jump!

Ice Guru, Randy Finch, competed for the last two years in ArtPrize!  This year he decided not to.  He does have a art exhibit in The BOB parking lot, all for your viewing pleasure.  This year he decided to do Art Prize for the real reason ArtPrize came to be.  To share Art For Art's Sake. That's the reason Randy does what he does!

ArtPrize Artist Party Tonight At WMCAT. “MetaPhorest” Mural Is Their Entry!

It's fun for me to be around my own kind.  We get each other.  Only within the last 15 years or so did I realize and begin to describe myself as an artist.  I've been one all my life.  I just thought I was different, and well, I am. But, it was much more than that.

About 10-15 years ago a General Manager told me me why he was hiring me.  He said I had one thing that the other 700+ candidates, some in major markets, others with as much or more talent than I had, did not have.  He said I was a "True Artist"; but he stretched out the "i" and made it into a long 'e."  Kind of how the French might say it!   Anyway, he saw that in me way before I did or at least I couldn't identify it.

WZZM 13 Segment Of Kim Carson’s 1950′s Pin Up Photo Shoot [video]

One night after 6 hours of sitting around talking with my friend, Audrey Depenbrok, she suggested we do a photo shoot at my awesome 1950's house.  Some of its features include a built in the wall toaster, a "Bewitched" double stove with pull out burners, closets that have a light that goes on when you open them and a built in the wall 1949 Zenith radio that has been converted to a clock radio, back in 1949, before there were clock radios

Well, the tribute display closes down tonight.  I visited it with a friend yesterday and we were both taken back a bit.  When you park and walk toward it it really is quite overwhelming to see 3200 full size flags representing the 3200 people lost in 9/11
