Elisa Turner was the primary art critic for the Miami Herald for many years until she had a terrible automobile accident that resulted in a coma and partial paralyzation. She had to relearn how to talk, walk, and use a computer. She made a full recovery and now writes for many publications. On Sunday, May 5, she will receive an award and be honored at an ArtTable event.
Inspicio, the arts and culture magazine, presents a video interview with Turner here.
