Wesley Schultz cofounded and leads the Grammy Award winning band, The Lumineers. Dedicated to the growth of his artwork, he relocated to Denver in the mid 2000s in order to more fully focus on music and touring. After the success of The Lumineers self-titled album Schultz continues to work with the band and tour extensively.
Barth Quenzer is an award winning teaching artist. Using a process of design thinking, he asks his students to follow their ideas. With a focus on empathy and inquiry as the impetus for designing learning experiences, Barth helps young artists bring their ideas to life.
