Last weekend I participated in the Highland Park Open Studios in Highland Park, NJ. Each year the Arts Commission and the Highland Park Artists Collective organize the event, promoting the artists and advertising for the event.
I had a lot of fun talking to everyone who came through the Lotus Studios and saw me and a bunch of other artists. I have attended many open studio events, but this was my first time exhibiting. It was a great chance to meet my neighbors, talk about my work, and promote our upcoming show:
NewMediator.org’s Group Art Show at Nighthawk Books 212 RARITAN AVENUE, HIGHLAND PARK, N.J. Saturday, May 28, 2011 2pm-6pm Featuring: John Herman (http://johnherman.org)
I am excited to share this interview I did with Duncan MacKenzie from Bad at Sports. A great deal of the work we are doing on NewMediator was inspired by the many dedicated folks behind Bad at Sports. I am basically stealing their idea and trying to do what I think they have done with the Chicago art world and apply it to New Jersey.
He was gracious enough to sit with me and discuss his many different roles. Duncan is an artist, educator, curator, critic, podcast, and merrymaker.
