What Community Does for Local Artists

It often seems that success in the arts means becoming prominent in a big city, or at least moving somewhere that’s not a small town in Eastern North Carolina. But for Maximillian Mozingo, a mixed medium artist based out of Kinston, North Carolina, working locally has made a tremendous impact on his life and career. He discusses his connection to the community, how he finds support through programs like SMARTKinston, and why local art matters.
