About this week's Guest Blogger:
Stan Smokler is a sculptor, adjunct professor at DCAD and curator. He also teaches an intensive weeklong welding workshop at his studio in the summer that I hear is awesome
(and HOT). I also know that he is a passionate and skilled squash player when he is not welding, teaching, curating or looking at art.
