Sharing insights from his work on hits like "Hamilton" and "Dear Evan Hansen," Korins offers a three-step process to start creating the world you want to live in.

Artist of the Month: Kristin Beck

Influenced by the vibrant culture of her native South Florida, Kristin Beck uses bold colors, recurring patterns, and strong lines that reflect the energy of the subtropics. Her most recurring theme is joy, which leaves its mark on many works. A goal for Beck is to bring a smile to her audience, which allows people to interact with art even when it cannot be touched. At the Art Talk, Kristin will host a brief walk-through of her work and talk about the inspiration and process behind it. She will also take any questions. Registration is not required.
