On April 10th Adrienne Outlaw, Nashville’s own socially engaged artist, agreed to have me intern in her cutting edge practice! I’ll admit to feeling like a star-struck adolescent. (Frankly, that alone is priceless :-). If you aren’t familiar with her work check out her website and blog at http://www.adrienneoutlaw.com. I discovered her work years ago at an exhibit at Cheekwood which fundamentally altered my perception of the roles that art can fill. I am humbled and grateful for this rare opportunity. Of the many – and there are MANY – things to learn the end game is to create and share more holistic and meaningful works that are a confluence of personal experience with my background in sociology and philosophy. To be sure it’s a tall order! I’m already working on my first assignment and thinking of ways to keep the blog appropriately updated. Until next time, stay engaged!
