Who ARTed is dedicated to equity celebrating the achievements of artists of all cultures. We appreciate artistry in all of its forms. From Leonardo da Vinci to Lego designers, Who ARTed is here to help you recognize the genius in all art forms one piece at a time.

    This is an encore presentation of my episode about Phil Hansen. New full episodes will be coming starting in September. In the meantime, you can find new episodes of Art Smart on your favorite podcast app every Wednesday, and I will be publishing new mini-episodes on Fridays. For images and resources, go to www.WhoArtEdPodcast.com For this week's episode I spoke with Kelly Beach about the contemporary American artist, Phil Hansen. The specific work being discussed was Hansen's piece Cobain, from his Goodbye Art 2 series. Hansen's work focuses largely on the creative process and overcoming obstacles. Hansen himself struggled with a tremor that hindered his artistic career until he learned to "embrace the shake" and change his methods, change his mindset and opened up a whole new world of possibilities.  Who ARTed is an Airwave Media Podcast.

    The history of photography has some really interesting and surprising facts. For example, the camera is about 2000 years older than photography. The earliest known camera obscuras were documented as far back as the 4th century BCE in China, while photography didn‘t really come about until the 18th Century. In the early 19th century, Louis Daguerre was working hard to improve the photographic method. His innovations helping to develop a latent image drastically cut down on exposure times making photography much more practical. Of course while I say it drastically cut down exposure times, it cut the times down from hours to minutes, but it was still too long to be practical for most people to be captured in a photo. The first photograph of people actually happened by accident as one man‘s decision to get his shoes shined in 1838 led to his likeness being captured in an image that would make history.
