Ben Trefny speaking with San Francisco artist Michael Kerbow

San Francisco artist Michael Kerbow uses his talents to illustrate that connection. The painter is currently showing a collection depicting dinosaurs interacting with how we now use their remains as fuel. The exhibit is at the 111 Minna Gallery.

KALW recently hosted an event there, and Executive Producer Ben Trefny sat down with Kerbow before a live audience to discuss his work.
