Spotlight On...

Welcome to the Spotlight On… brought to you by The Little Yellow Building in Brookhaven, Mississippi.

We are celebrating Mississippi Artists of all walks of life, providing them with a platform to share themselves and their work. I have invited artists from all across the state to take the Spotlight and tell us a little more about the interesting lives they lead.

I am joined this week by Mississippi Conceptual Artist and Professor Kristen Tordella-Williams who just floods knowledge all over this episode. She shares about her journey with Art into a profession, teaching equality in the classroom (referenced books and authors listed below), tips on how to be a better artist and human, and some much needed advice on bringing Public Arts into your communities.
