Locust Roundtable: Daniel Clapp

Artists find inspiration in a wide spectrum of sources, from a local/macro scale to overarching themes and discourses.

Locust Roundtable: Jim Drain

There are moments when the pressure to make art is overwhelming, when artists do not want to create. What does this mean? Is the impulse to make art a therapeutic one? How does that line up with notions of an authentic self? Jim Drain will be speaking about a selection of online videos that help him explore these questions.
