Micah Schweizer oversees arts and culture coverage for Wyoming Public Radio, including the podcasts HumaNature and The Modern West. He’s had a taste of various cultures growing up in Switzerland, studying in France, and living in six states in the U.S. Before moving to Wyoming, he worked as an award-winning public radio reporter, producer, and host at WNIN-FM in southern Indiana. Micah got his start in radio at Wisconsin Public Radio and has contributed to networks including NPR and the BBC. During the 2008 presidential primaries, he was a recurring guest on WNYC’s The Takeaway. He received his B.A. in French and German at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. Before working in radio, Micah was a public school teacher. He lives in Laramie with his wife and four rescued cats. In his free time, Micah can be found playing music on electric bass and Irish tin whistle.

The work of the late Harry Jackson ran the gamut from abstract expressionism, inspired by his friend Jackson Pollock, to the Western art for which he was best known. His sculpture of a hard-riding John Wayne was on the cover of Time Magazine in 1969.

Most of Jackson's life work is still at his studios in Cody, Wyo. But unless a major donor steps forward, it will be sold piecemeal to pay the bills.
