Legacy Specialist with CALL Artists Juan SanchezMario Martinez and Emmett Wigglesworth

Can you share what has changed for you as a result of being a part of the CALL program?
I am aware of time in a different way. I understand what I do as an artist from the perspective of a longer timeline.

Can you give us a sense of what needed to be accomplished when you started working with the CALL program?
I have worked with three CALL artist recipients. So a lot has been accomplished. Organization, documentation and access to artwork and information have been the key accomplishments.

What has been the most rewarding aspect of this work?
The cross generational artist to artist connection that happens.

What has been most difficult?
Having patience.

What do you recommend to artists who might be in the early stages of creating an inventorying system?
At least keep a simple system of documentation and titles and years for everything you make.
