10 Questions with… Grey Williamson
I'll be posting 10 Questions with... a number of artists who are taking part in the Aim, Destroy, Transform: Play for Change Toy Show , presented by Medialia Gallery & The Ethyr and taking place November 4-25 2017 in NYC.

4. What's your most prized collectible?
Brother’s Worker “Robber”
5. What was the last film you watched?
The “MAGNIFICENT SEVEN” remake.
6. Do you unbox and display or keep MIB (mint in box)?
There was a time that I did both, but I am no longer a “collector’. So that means, I think, display in the future.
7. What was the last book you read?
SECTORS by Harule Stokes
8. Star Trek or Star Wars?
Although Im not deeply invested in either, I would probably lean toward TREK, as that franchise acknowledges the presence of non-whites a little more convincingly, with a little more agency within its culture.
9. What motto/creed do you try to live by?
Be in it, but not of it.
10. What was the inspiration behind the piece that you produced for the Aim, Destroy, Transform: Play for Change toy show?
I could tell you, but then…
