 Mike is a sculptor that primarily works in metal, preferring to use recycled material when possible. Using a mix of new and recycled materials leads to the material dictating the flow of the piece and the creative process. The juxtaposition of the new and old creates these sort of metal collages.

Mike revels in being creative and learning new ways of doing things. There is always some new challenge to overcome!  He has contributed to the True/False Film Fest for the last 13 years, growing a forest in the Forrest Theatre at the Tiger Hotel, and designing the awards for Gimme Truth the last six years. 

Bussen Productions excels at custom, individualized videography and photography projects. Owner Karl Bussen's favorite spot is behind the lens of a camera. Bussen Productions has a wide range of clientele, including law firms, surgeons, marketing agencies, breweries, gourmet restaurants, and many others. Karl strives to capture moments in an engaging way that makes the audience feel the content. People and their stories inspire him and this is what inspired us to involve him with CelebrARTy.  We can't wait to see his depiction of Joe's art journey!
