Mind-expanding and inspiring!

I really enjoy this podcast, it shows art in the light that goes beyond a gallery wall -- art in life. Art as something we all create and can be a part of. Way on the fringes, living life as art, as a connection to the spiritual and to the Earth. Excellent podcast.

LAND ART!

What a joy it's been to listen to these! The stories are creative, and have exposed me to many places around California that I'm now wanting to visit. The show is educational without being boring. I love how the show just *feels* arty. :P Hosts are great too. Thanks SFMOMA!
