The sun sets over our final full day of Field School. This week has been a blur or desert landscape. I think that I will miss piling in and out of the van, knitting friendship bracelets, and high speed birding down interstates. This experience has introduced me to a community of artists who have forged their own paths in the world that exists far beyond the white cube. From them I hope to remember to work hard and follow what speaks personally to me. I have found that the most interesting art comes from genuine places of exploration and community involvement.
