United States Artists: Virgil Ortiz

In his works of pottery, film, and fashion, Virgil Ortiz combines a time-honored Pueblo tradition of art-as-social-commentary with cutting-edge attitude.

This is just one of many videos at the United States Artists website. "United States Artists (USA) is a grant-making, artist-advocacy organization dedicated to supporting America’s finest artists working across diverse disciplines. After decades of dwindling public support, at USA, artists now have a home where they may find significant private funding—unrestricted cash grants—to ignite the creativity that makes this country great."
