2008-2009
Wrote the “Southland Flaneur” column for Artillery art magazine, based in Los Angeles. Each essay began with an art exhibition or event that would become the impetus for considering larger issues in the world. Its lyrical and freewheeling style is a precedent for the longer form one that I use for my current postings on KCET-TV Artbound (see above for their titles).
