Their blissful visions seem somehow always fresh even in today’s climate, and always enriching to the environments in which they find a home. There is certainly something timeless about great art that has tapped into the living voice of a keen creator.

  7. Spotlight – Bruce Nauman

    Spotlight – Bruce Nauman

    By the time he went to grad school for art he had already given up painting in favor of other media.
