I’ve just returned from the McDowell Colony Medal Day. One of my favorite days of the year! McDowell is an artist colony in Peterborough.Artist, writers, poets, composers, photographers are all invited to apply to spend up to a month working on a project. There have been some amazing people who have spent time there. Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Thornton Wilder, John Updike, Georgia O’Keefe, Edward Hopper…and on and on. This year the medal winner was Toni Morrison!
The photographer, Bill Jacobson was in residence this month…along with 30 others and visitors got a chance to meet and talk to him in his studio. What a great opportunity!
