In all honesty, this is the 3rd time I've tried to commit to a blog. Often times while I'm researching a subject I come across an idea or bit of knowledge that really resonates with me and they always end up being the things I wish I knew sooner. I think to myself, why didn't I know this? And why didn't anyone tell me?! So with that thought, I realized I was part of that problem by not sharing the information I find valuable, challenging or insightful. I have decided that it's important to contribute. So this is a portrait of me and what I curate for myself.
I'm a big admirer of Dana Schutz's paintings and when I found out she gave a commencement speech at the New York Academy of Art, I raced through Google at lightning speed to find it. I love commencement speeches, the good ones are full of fire.
