Artist Spotlight 2: Amber Hansen and Nicholas Ward

Nick Ward and Amber Hansen are two of the most creative people I know. From video, to painting, to sculpture, to community-based projects, to masterful drawings, these two do can do it all, and very well.
Both of these fantastic artists received their MFA from University of Kansas, where Amber is currently the lecturer of drawing and painting. Right now these two are in Joplin, MO organizing and documenting a community mural project. Below you'll find some of their videos as well as a link to a kickstarter page for "Called to Walls," a national mural project/documentary. Support if you can.

Amber and Nick will be collaborating on an interactive video piece during Take the day. 2011. Wow! I can't wait. Below is what they made at Take the day.2010. Each head in this video is either a Take the day. artist or a member of the greater community. Music by Amber Hansen and Darcy Millette.

It's an honor folks.
