(aired Weds 11/10/21)

Back in September, we brought you a conversation with artist Jim Collins - the creator of the Watcher sculptures found here in Chattanooga, around the Southeast and all the way to Ireland.

Jim’s visit to WUTC sparked a connection with one of our student interns here at the station - Malachy O’Connell, a native of Ireland, in the Dublin area.

Mal, along with our own Richard Winham, paid a visit to Jim - and now, we bring you Mal’s profile of Jim Collins.
