I am pleased to present the May/June 2015 issue of Art21 Magazine. FAMILY is the theme for the next two months — and it’s definitely a family affair, y’all. For this exciting issue, I carefully selected and commissioned 11 writers and artists to contribute work. Each approached family in their own way. Thank you!
