Santa Fe’s food and art lovers know that the last weekend in February means ARTFeast. Now in its 18th year, it’s one of the most anticipated events on the Santa Fe art and food scenes. The 2014 edition is from Friday, February 20th through Sunday, February 22nd  at various venues around town. The weekend is a fund-raiser for ARTsmart, an organization that funds art programs in Santa Fe schools.

    Hope I’m not intruding. Here’s a 30-minute documentary I produced on behalf of Artfeast last year.

    Hope to see you all there this year!
