Andrew Henrikson moved to Salt Lake City, UT, in 1997 to attend graduate school. After defending his master’s in geophysics in 1999, he became a self-described “ski bum,” working in as much climbing and running as possible. Currently a physics teacher at a private school, he founded the first high-school crew to row in Utah, on the Great Salt Lake. Andrew welcomes hearing from classmates at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Installation artist Launa Bacon was featured in the May 2 Los Angeles Times for creating a fantasy street scene in a vacant building in downtown LA. The installation consists of a web constructed with yarn and glue that surrounds various human figures—including an angry young man confronting a cop, a panhandler, several laughing women, and a weary crowd waiting for a city bus. Launa supports her “art habit” with secretarial work and a waitressing job at a coffee shop, the source of her inspiration for the piece. The installation is part of an effort to transform the former industrial neighborhood into an arts center known as Gallery Row.
