Ursula Barton & Jailbreak Collective

Episode 101: Today I talk to Ursula Barton about her Jailbreak Studios & Collective, which is an all female group. I first heard about Ursula on Chris Guillibeau’s Side Hustle School podcast, where she talked about her signature Cityscapes; the art she created based upon her hometown, Portland’s skyline. I loved the story so much, I knew I had to get her on my podcast, so through the power of the internet, I reached out & connected!

Center for Contemporary Political Art

Episode 90: Today I talk to Robin Strongin at the Center for Contemporary Political Art in Washington DC. I generally try to stay away from politics on the podcast, but I had to learn more about this gallery.

They want to represent both sides, but no pro-Trump artists  responded to their calls for artwork. They have to work with what they have. So I encourage any Pro-Trumpers and Right Wing artists to connect with them.
