Inside Creative Minds #21
April 20th, 2009
Episode 21 of Inside Creative Minds (ICM), a 30-minute television program celebrating the work, knowledge talent and passion of Arizona’s creative community is now on air across the Valley. The current episode was shot at the Tempe Center for the Arts and features Woody Wilson, writer of the syndicated newspaper comics Rex Morgan, MD and Judge Parker, and John Kane, founding partner and design principal with Architekton.
“Woody and John are very influential players in the local creative community,” said Tray Goodman, producer and host of ICM. “In addition to possessing amazing innovative skills, they also are major contributors to the local community. They’re exactly the kind of people ICM loves to spotlight.”
With an estimated readership of 30 million in North America and 14 foreign countries, Wilson’s comics have earned him high recognition such as the Creative Media Award and The University of Tennessee’s Lena Warner Prize for Contributions to the Health of the Nation. In addition to his syndicated comics, Wilson also is the creator of LakeShore Producers, a company that packages, produces and promotes a wide range of jazz entertainment events at the Tempe Center for the Arts. He also is active in Tempe community affairs and serves on the Board of the Tempe Community Council and is the current Chairman of the Tempe Historic Preservation Foundation.
Architekton, a mixed-used architectural development in Tempe, is the brainchild of Kane who was recognized in 2002 by Architecture Magazine as part of the Arizona Desert School, a group of influential architects redefining desert modernism. Kane’s designs are respected throughout the Southwest as a paradigm for appropriate and sustainable architecture. Architekton’s creativity and innovation has resulted in more than 75 local and national citations for excellence in design since 1989. Kane is a visiting critic at Arizona State University’s College of Architecture and serves on a variety of community boards and committees. He also is one of only 2,500 people inducted into the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects, an organization consisting of more than 80,000 members.
