A Moment with Elizabeth Tenney “TAKE FIVE: Making Art in Reno”

Today I talked to Elizabeth Tenney about TAKE FIVE:  Making Art in Reno, happening this weekend (January 12th and 13th 2018) at Bruka Theater.

Over two nights, 36 artists will have 5 minutes each to talk, show, or create their art. This promises to be fast paced and very exciting.
