VIA Contributors

Behind every VIA article there's an intrepid reporter risking sunburn on an exotic Tahitian cruise, indigestion on San Francisco's best food tours, and over-exfoliation in the West Coast's most relaxing spas. These are the men and women who lived to tell the tale.

Will Shank

A trained art historian and conservator, Will Shank spent 15 years restoring paintings at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art—the perfect background to appreciate the restoration of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. A contributing reviewer for The Art Newspaper in London, Will travels regularly to Western Europe, Mexico, and throughout the United States, where he is particularly fascinated by large-scale folk art sites.
