Seth Aylmer & Jose Serrano-McClain
Seth Aylmer & Jose Serrano-McClain introduced Trust Art at the TED Conference in 2009. Trust Art provides a novel way to create community around public artist projects: issuing ‘shares’ and making philanthropically-minded individuals ‘shareholders’ in the projects. Trust Art is the culmination of Seth Aylmer and Jose Serrano-McClain’s creative work together for the last five years. Seth is a video artist, painter, and sculptor, currently apprenticing with renowned American sculptor Michael Rothschild. Jose started his career as an economic analyst at the Federal Reserve, which led him to develop a stronger interest in the economy of the creative spirit.
