The Biscuit CLT Podcast

Apr 23, 2019

Welcome to the Creative Mornings Charlotte podcast. Today’s show features hosts Tim Miner and Matt Olin speaking with Charlotte artist MyLoan Dinh, just two weeks following the April 5 Creative Mornings Charlotte event, where MyLoan spoke about the global theme of “Inclusive.”

MyLoan Dinh is a multi-disciplinary artist who creates thought-provoking installations, paintings and objects in mixed media. A former Vietnamese refugee who settled in North Carolina after fleeing Saigon with her family in 1975, Dinh challenges institutionalized ideas in her work while sharing her perspective on the social environment. Although raised in the west, her Southeast Asian roots have been a source of reference and inspiration in her work.

In this episode of the Creative Mornings Charlotte podcast, MyLoan talks about when she started using art as a means to carry a message, the state of immigration today in America, and why she chose the phrase “Wasn’t that great?” to close out her Creative Mornings Charlotte talk. Also on the microphone is MyLoan’s partner, artist Till Schmidt-Rimpler.

Register for the next Creative Mornings Charlotte event Friday, May 3 at 8:30 a.m. at Romare Bearden Park in Uptown. The featured speaker will be plastination scientist Jamie Decker speaking about the global theme of “Preserve”.  RSVPs will open at 9 a.m., Monday, April 29.

The Creative Mornings Charlotte Podcast is hosted by Tim Miner and Matt Olin, and produced by Andy Goh. Music by Harvey Cummings.
