Jenea talks about her artistic roots, trajectory and life at the border. We talk a little about arts administration, i.e. founding Border Arts Corridor, the upcoming Binational Art Walk, her role as Communications Manager at the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona, and her newest hat as host and producer of Artistories!
