"A good teacher is like a good artist. They go right to the most difficult part of whatever's going on." —Bruce Nauman

In a new episode from Art21's Exclusive series, artist Bruce Nauman discusses two teachers who influenced his approach to horseback riding and art making: master horse trainer Ray Hunt and painter Wayne Thiebaud. This episode was filmed at the artist's New Mexico ranch in August 2000.
