As a part of the Bridge's ongoing artist interview series, Executive Director Matthew Slaats sat down with classicist Benjamin Jasnow and artist John Woodman to talk about their May exhibition Ancient Songs, Modern Muses. The project was a collaboration between the two translating the ancient poems of Theocritus in both literary and visual media. In this video Matthew, Benjamin, and John talk about the collaboration and the process that resulted in the exhibition.
Artist Discussions is a series of conversations revolving around exhibitions and programs taking place at The Bridge Progress Arts Initiative in Charlottesville, VA. In June 2013, artist Mark Strandquist exhibited "Some Other Places We've Been," a project that worked with inmates in Virginia prisons. In this talk Mark speaks with Bridge director Matthew Slaats about the project and how the exhibition is being connected into the Charlottesville community.
