In this episode…
Victor Mavedzenge introduces us to Jenna Countryman Mauro, Steven Yu, and Raul D’Mauries, whose work is featured in the 2020 East Bay Artists book. Without a doubt, we’re facing unprecedented and unpredictable times, where our world has been turned upside down. No one is immune to feelings of isolation and loss; how do we move forward when the simple act of human connection can be a struggle? Be prepared for some real talk as these three share how they’ve leaned on Art for support, and the deeper meaning behind a pretty picture.
