K.V.: Best place in Austin to experience art for someone who has never been to a gallery?

Lana: The Turrell Skyspace. I recently brought a friend there who doesn’t know much about art. At first he looked up and thought it looked like a hole in the roof. When we left, he couldn’t stop talking about it. How he felt, what he felt. I think the impact will stay with him a long time. That’s when I love art the most. When it touches people in that way. 

K.V.: Best place in Austin to interact with art?

Steve: I love the Blanton. I’m quite partial to museums. I like to view art at my own pace and I like to explore.

K.V.: Last gallery you visited?

Lana: Unix Gallery in Houston

Steve: Big Medium Gallery at Canopy
