Podcast—Playing With Fire: in Conversation with Virgil Ortiz

On this episode, Kathleen Ash-Milby and John P. Lukavic are joined by multi-hyphenate Native artist, Virgil Ortiz. With his work in subversive clay sculptures, futuristic fashion design, and a years-long science-fiction film & museum exhibition project about the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, Virgil Ortiz is breaking boundaries and using his platform to educate and inspire awe.
