Video Interview with Brian Weiss
Brian Weiss is vice-president of the GANM board of directors. He and his wife Joan and their golden retriever Abby have lived in Santa Fe since 2018. Their previously-limited glass collection is rapidly expanding.
Brian is a non-fiction writer, former college professor (UCLA and the University of Michigan), and was one of the original members of Angel Flight, an organization that provides free transportation in private aircraft for people without the means to reach needed medical care. He holds a master’s degree in anthropology from UNM, and did a year-and-a-half of doctoral fieldwork on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua with the Miskito Indians, where he made two films that were in distribution for almost 40 years. His anthropology background and general curiosity created an interest in how glass has been a medium for both artistic expression and practical use in cultures around the globe for thousands of years.
