Clare Loeb interviews Mary Holmes, art educator at University of California, Santa Cruz. The teacher discusses both the needs and objectives of art education. Holmes discusses her experiences as an artist growing up during the Depression, the hostility between between artists and art historians, her experiences with her students, what "success" means as an artist, artists as social critics, and the importance of a liberal arts education.
