The Modern Art Notes Podcast

Episode No. 500 features artists Nancy Grossman and Stacy Lynn Waddell.

Grossman is featured in "Nasher Mixtape," a series of micro-exhibitions at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas through September 26; and in "Vibrant: Artists Engage with Color" at the Weatherspoon Art Museum at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro through June 26.
