Sidney Wildesmith

Sidney Wildesmith is a Renaissance Man. He is an artist, musician, naturalist, radio talk show host, and ideographic, among others. But the one thing he MUST do is paint. Wildesmith grew up in Minnesota and Wisconsin and then lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where his artistic nature blossomed, for 25 years. He founded the National Parks Touring Artists Program and conducted hundreds of classes as artist-in-residence at Yellowstone, Mesa Verde, Arches, Canyonlands and Redwoods. Since 2004, Wildesmith has been host and producer of the Wild Side News, an Internet radio show about nature and the environment. He has also produced many DVDs, including several of kinetic sculptures.
