Speaking his mind, no matter the cost
Stephen Braun is a sculptor who lives in northwest Montana. Braun’s art calls out corporate greed, environmental ignorance, societal gluttony and other present-day sins in a confrontational, no-holds-barred way.
Living as a radical liberal in a conservative area of the state has presented its problems. Braun says he has received death threats. So he insisted on wearing a ventilator, stocking hat and sunglasses for his portrait to protect his identity.
