Work of Art:
The Mason Gross Podcast
Work of Art: The Mason Gross Podcast is a production of Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts in New Brunswick, New Jersey. We are a community of nearly 1,200 undergrad and graduate dancers, musicians, theater artists, filmmakers, and visual artists from around the globe. Every other Tuesday, we speak with with some of these artists, discussing what fuels their curiosity, their passion, and their impulse to make.
