My name is Louis Vargas and this is The (art)Scene Podcast. I am originally from San Diego where I grew up and then attended the University of San Diego. About five years ago, I moved up to San Francisco to pursue a masters degree in exhibition and museum studies at the San Francisco Art Institute. I now work for a local museum in the Bay Area. After reconnecting with some of my classmates from grad school, I realized that many of them have gone on to pursue a variety of careers. Hearing the stories behind their career decisions and what they hope to accomplish, inspired me to start The (art)Scene Podcast, a series of conversations artists, gallery owners, museum professionals and anybody else with an art background but have gone on to do something completely different. We’ll cover not only their work, but other facets of their lives and the stories that come with them.
