I recently have gotten back in touch with one of my old sculpture professors at UVA who I think is sortof great and who has now taken on a new name: Boriska (his real name is Bill). Now I know that is an aside, but a good one.

So he sends me stuff now and then about his/UVA’s goings on and this one seems neat:
