TEASER From My WZZM13 / grNow.com Segment Sunday Early Morning News

The grNow.com segment I do airs usually on Sunday morning between 7am and 7:30am on the WZZM 13 Sunday Early Morning News with Jennifer Pascua and Aaron Ofseyer.  I am doing a story on the "back story" of ArtPrize.  While everyone is talking about what we did right with Artprize, and what we need to do to make ArtPrize better next year; I wanted to talk to a host family about what the ArtPrize experience was like for them.  What was it like inviting a person you didn't know into your home for about 3 weeks?

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.
