ASU dean on 'state of the arts' in the Valley

May 24, 2016

The Phoenix New Times published a “ State of the Arts ” cover story March 19 that includes insights from several key players in the Valley's art scene. One of the people interviewed at some length is Steven J. Tepper, dean of ASU’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, who came to Arizona from Nashville, Tennessee about a year ago.

In a KJZZ piece about the New Times story, Tepper talks about what makes the Valley a unique place and how its art scene might flourish.

“People are actually asking the question of 'what we can become and who are we' and I think that really creates a dynamic energy and a kind of aspirational energy that I think is really the root of what a creative city is all about,” said Tepper.
