Outsider Art: Inside the Portland Art & Learning Studio

This episode idea was submitted to us by Daniel Rolnik, the Gallery Director of the Portland Art & Learning Studio (PALS). PALS is an art studio and gallery space for adults experiencing intellectual and developmental disabilities located in Northeast Portland. Daniel wanted to feature an artist at the studio by the name of Matthew Spencer, a ceramic artist with autism, to discuss his background, PALS, collaborating with other artists at the Studio, and using art to eradicate stigmas.
