Episode 542: Listen as I chat with illustrator and designer, Adam G.

He loves Miro, geometry, patterns, and all things design.
Episode 41: Who are you? Who am I? Who is that? Identity in American culture is often as much about how an individual presents himself or herself as it about how that person’s identity is externally determined. Brooke talks with associate curator Maggie Adler of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas about Identity, an exhibition which explores community, celebrity and individual identity through portraiture from the Amon Carter’s permanent collection. The exhibition highlights the exciting new acquisitions of Sedrick Huckaby’s The 99% and Glenn Ligon’s print series Runaways. Their works – in combination with prints and photographs of and by public figures such as Marilyn Monroe, Martin Luther King, Jr., and and Georgia O’Keeffe – show the various personas individuals adopt. Together, these portraits represent the fluid and constantly shifting role of identity in society from the twentieth to the twenty-first century. Identity runs until October 9, 2016.
