I didn’t know what the term “monocrop” meant until I was in my 20’s.

Announcing Little Bear Hill

One of the hardest things to do so far with the development of Little Bear Hill has been actually telling people. Not so much the telling of acquaintances and colleagues within the art world, but our friends and family. We seem to have this overwhelming dread that the people that mean the most to us […]
