Episode 28 – “Ability to Recognize…Maybe”

How do we know when art ‘works’ or doesn’t? Is it intuition or knowledge? Bill and Jeffery also tackle some listener mail about b/w conversion, hype in the art world, and a rebuttal of a listener who thinks Bill is a little too cranky. Master portraitist Irving Penn is this week’s photographer.
