by aE Issue 28.2: Meet the Folks   April 23, 2008

Featuring a breezy Q & A with mnartists.org's new in-coming director, Scott Stulen and an engaging one-on-one interview with WAC Director Olga Viso

Consider this a meet-and-greet issue of access+ENGAGE. Specifically, now that the Walker Art Center's new Director, Olga Viso, has had some time to get settled in, we decided it was time for a sit-down chat to get to know her a little better. And just recently, we landed ourselves a stellar new director here at mnartists.org: Rochester Art Center curator and mixed media artist Scott Stulen. Scott's not officially stepping into his new role with mnartists.org till the end of May, but we don't want to wait till then to get behind the stats on his C.V. to see where he stands on reality TV, what's in his Netflix queue, and how he really feels about Guns 'N Roses.
