Creator of the Santa Barbara Arts Blog

Since coming to Santa Barbara by way of Iowa/Portland/Burning Man, Nathan Vonk has advocated for the arts, either in his work at Sullivan Goss gallery, on various arts boards, or by publishing his go-to page on the state of SB, the Santa Barbara Arts Blog.

I've known Nathan and his wife Erin for years, but this is the first time I really sat down and chatted with him. I hope you enjoy!
