About First Person and Living Arts:

First Person magazine began in 2006 to give artists and curators a platform to vocalize their personal views about how life influences their work, the inner pinnings of the art world, and their creative process. Founder and Curator, Betty Nguyen took the focus away from art criticism to explore art as an experience

Living Arts Fund is a newly formed non-profit in progress whose main mission is to keep artists and art interests thriving in California. Through commissioned projects, community-based activities and exhibitions at Living Arts Fund space opening in Winter 2010, Living Arts Fund will collaborate with multidisciplinary artists, designers, animators, cooks, writers and craftspeople toward expanding the umbrella of Art
