Kaziah's Tribute to Fallen Soldiers
My talk at the Mountain West Conference on the Arts Friday went very well, and I recapped it in Friday's Audio Pod Chronicles. Another highlight of the conference was a Governor's Award given to Utah artist Kaziah, who paints portraits of GIs killed in Iraq and donates the paintings to their families. NBC's Today show carried this piece from its Minnesota affiliate, and we watched it during the awards luncheon at the conference. Not a dry eye. Kaziah then took the podium and displayed the same wild and tender energy as in the video. A Utah original.
