Makoto Fujimura Responds to the Crisis in Japan

I don’t usually cross-post between my podcast (IAM Conversations) and my blog, but I wanted to be sure my blog readers knew about this interview I did today with Makoto Fujimura, the Japanese-American painter who founded International Arts Movement, served on the National Council on the Arts, and wrote River Grace and Refractions.

Mako loves Japan. He travels back and forth throughout the year, and in fact is heading there in a few weeks to speak and to explore some possibilities, with other IAM artists and creative catalysts, for artists to respond to the crisis. I hope to be part of that.

Listen to our interview here.

And if you are looking for a way to respond tangibly to this crisis, please consider donating to CRASH Japan, a trustworthy organization already at work there.
