Fountains, Watercolor, Collins
Saturday, June 12, 2004
Kurt Andersen and his guest, the poet Billy Collins, talk about the pleasures and dangers of making art out of water. Collins tells us how poets came to replace sex and violence in their writing with water and landscape. We visit a photographer who spent a year in a California town before it was inundated to create a new reservoir. And watercolor artists struggle to keep the color exactly where they want it.
