Episode 86: This week Claire Maxwell speaks with Sarah Emerson, an Atlanta native whose recent mural, Black Sea of Trees, is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida through July 8. Sarah discusses the process of making murals and how she began creating them. She also talks about her participation with Living Walls 2012 and how that experience compared to working inside of a gallery.
