On Saturday mornings in Oxford, patrons of the local Farmers’ Market bundle up against the crisp autumn air, make their way Uptown and explore the various stalls to sample and purchase everything from fresh produce and festive artwork to pour-over coffee and flaky pastries.

His response is practiced, but not rehearsed. He’s repeated it to countless customers throughout the morning, but every time, his answer...Read More
The room resembles most other university common areas. Bean bag chairs and futons with throw pillows rest on the wooden floor. Flyers advertising on-campus events hang from the walls. Autumn decorations adorn the cozy brick fireplace. Baskets of snacks and school supplies are available on various tables and desks. On a central table lies a stack of small leaflets.

They’re also part of one of the most highly acclaimed public art installations in the world. “Intrude” is a spectacle-sized work consisting of five inflatable rabbits that are...Read More
Nestled in the mountainous woods an hour east of Lexington, KY, lies the cozy town of Campton. It’s a veritable one-road village, the route 11 Mountain Parkway snaking its way through the terrain, sheer rock faces rising up on either side of the street. Not many people recognize Campton by name, but whether you’re at the bouldering wall at the Rec or leading a pitch on El Capitan in Yosemite, if you talk to any rock climber, they know the area: This is the Red River Gorge.
