Daniel Heyman talks about prints, teaching, and working with dental plaster – a podcast interview
Roberta and Libby interview Daniel Heyman in this 15-minute podcast for Artblog Radio.


Daniel Heyman brings extraordinary empathy to his subjects–and never seems to run out of it. His widely shown Amman Portfolio–a series of portraits of Iraqi Abu Ghraib prison survivors on which their stories are handwritten — was at the Baltimore Museum of Art last month.   Daniel’s mom started a special education school and his oldest brothers is a union organizer. Heyman teaches art at Princeton and at RISD. A solo show of his self-portrait prints, which he talks about in this podcast, will be on view at Cade Thompkins Gallery in Providence some time after Labor Day.

This episode is edited by Peter Crimmins. The music is by Eric Biondo. Thanks to the Knight Foundation for helping us get the ball rolling on this project.
