For the final Durango Diaries of the season, four Durango artists will share stories of what inspires them, why they create and working in the craft of art.

Storytellers include:

Sam Bridgham, known as the Lego bomber installs Lego sculptures on signposts, bridges and pretty much anything he can get them to stick to around town. His creations are interactive, public and aimed at both children and adults.

Dan Groth draws, paints, collages, journals and more. He is well known for his pen and ink drawings, collage work and fake movie posters.

Rosemary Meza-DesPlas is known for exploring gender, sexuality and identity issues through hand-sewn human hair drawings, watercolors and on-site drawing installations. She parallels the themes in her artwork with written and spoken word performances.

Lisa Pedolsky primarily focuses on hand-built functional ceramics, 2D mixed media and hand-bound books. Her ceramics are made of terra cotta with visual and tactile depth developed through layering materials and carving into the surfaces.
