Welcome to Art Sanctuary! 

Chapter 2 - Lorene Cary

As the intersection between art, technology and new media continues to allow arts organizations to reach audiences beyond their communities and corridors, Art Sanctuary has launched ‘In the Sanctuary,’ a podcast featuring interviews and commentary from noted authors across the U.S. Our next edition of ‘In the Sanctuary’ features a chat between Art Sanctuary founder and author of “Black Ice”, “The Price of A Child”, and “If Sons, Then Heirs”, Lorene Cary and Art Sanctuary Executive Director Valerie Gay about the experience of writing, early career changes and where she finds her sanctuary.
