Centerfold Artist

Mr. January, Ben Kinsley

Centerfold Artist is a series of monthly podcasts that features actively showing artists from around the country. We ask the tough questions that cut to the heart and expose inner thoughts and feelings. Each featured artist is provided a datasheet that is to be filled out and returned in a sealed envelope. This envelope is then opened for an improvisational discussion.

In this our first installment of Centerfold Artist, we introduce Mr. January, Ben Kinsley. Ben is currently teaching in Washington, DC at American University. He recently had a show called Harry Smith Was So Skinny… a Janks Archive at the Practice Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. To see this month’s datasheet, click here. To learn more about Ben and all of his artwork please visit his website. And to learn more about us, write to centerfoldartist at gmail dot com.
