My friend David Fodel is an amazing cat. He is a busy artist, constantly creating new artwork. He is also a teacher at UCD (University of Colorady - Denver), currently working with a group of sculpture students. But perhaps most interestingly, he is the creator/coordinator/developer of events and festivals, most significantly the MediaLive festival in Boulder, CO.
I've often been curious about what it takes to create festivals, then have both the strength and faith required to swing the doors open for the public. Since I'm in the process of working at one of Dave's events (Mediatized, April 16, Emmanuel Gallery on the grounds of UCD, Denver CO), I thought I'd connect with Dave for a discussion about his background, his ideas about community, and his vision for his personal art.
