Lawdale Art Center - Mark Ponder: A Time to Celebrate

A Time To Celebrate is the title of Mark Ponder's installation at Lawndale Art Center. Colorful streamers, balloons, confetti, presents, refreshments -- they're all there. But wait! There's also blood and desiccated bones, the skin of a fox and images of dying animals. The artist tells us what exactly is it that we're celebrating ...

Artist Mark Ponder chats about his piece, A Time to Celebrate, with Bob Stevenson.
