As Appalachian State University's Turchin Center for the Visual Arts celebrates its 10th anniversary, we also celebrate the value art adds to our lives. This video is one of a three-part series of conversations with contemporary artists produced in 2013. Here, artist Lowell Hayes talks about his art, his creative process and what inspires him to make art.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the opening of Appalachian State University's Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, this video was created in may 2013 to commemorate Bob and Lillian Turchin, who helped the university realize the dream of sharing an active and engaging visual arts center with our students, faculty, staff and community.
