John Van Alstine on Mythology as Inspiration

Video duration: 1:45

'A lot of people ask me why I'm making sculpture about death and dying or transporting to the underworld. It's really not about that at all. It's about living and living life fully.' John Van Alstine shares the inspiration behind one of his sculptures. Watch him on AHA! A House for Arts: Transcend http://www.wmht.org/aha
