Porochista, MacDowell, Blind Boys
Friday, August 22, 2008
The ultimate summer camp for artists. For a century New Hampshire’s MacDowell Colony has given artists studio space in the woods, no interruptions, and a picnic basket delivered to the cabin door. We’ll hear from MacDowell alums Mike Daisey, a monologist, and Tara Geer, a visual artist. The writer Henry Alford gets inspired to start his own artist colony, and delivers lunch by subway to a hand-picked group of artists. Plus, novelist Porochista Khakpour and an in-studio performance from gospel legends, The Blind Boys of Alabama.
