In this episode, I interview Hamilton Glass. Hamilton, AKA Ham, is a Richmond, Virginia based artist with a background in architecture and design. Ham is a prolific painter and muralist, who is well known for using his art as a tool for inspiration and healing in the community. In 2020, Ham founded the influential large-scale public art project: Mending Walls which was created to bring about healing through public art while adding to the conversation of Black Lives Matter.

In this hour long conversation we discuss:

  • The power of public art

  • Shifting career paths

  • And so much more!
