Jonathan Katz, Executive Director, National Assembly of State Arts Agencies: “The quality of this fifty-essay collection that drew me in and kept me engaged is that the performing, visual, literary and media artists – as well as the inventive designers, costumers, archivists and others who collaborate to produce what audiences experience – are actually describing their work – not only the artistic product, but the occasion, the problem, their motivation, and their individually distinctive processes of exploration and decision making. The book is full of revelations about works of art, about how artists work, and about the cultural richness of Washington, DC. Kudos to Robert Bettmann for giving us the fifty-first work of art, this well conceived and edited book.“ Lewis Segal, Music and Dance Critic, Los Angeles Times: “When it comes to supporting artists and arts writers, Robert Bettmann is a force of nature. Lucky the creators and annotators who meet his standards, and lucky the audiences and readers who can appreciate the results.” Mike Panetta, Founder, Beekeeper Group: “With this anthology Robert Bettmann has put the world on notice that Washington makes things more beautiful than legislation... It shows a side of DC many people may not be familiar with, and is highly recommended.” Michael Kaiser, President, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts: “Bourgeon does more than take you on a tour of the arts landscape of the Washington, DC area. It takes you on a fascinating journey through the minds of dozens of artists and answers the question: what were they thinking? I highly recommend it for any arts library.“ Norton Owen, Director of Preservation, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival: “It’s a delight to peer directly into the hearts and minds of the diverse artists represented here, and an inspiration to contemplate how much they add to the world we live in.” Tommy Usrey, Advocacy Chairman of the Louisiana Partnership for the Arts and Executive Director, Northeast Louisiana Arts Council: “As one of those typical cold-blooded, bottom-line focused arts administrators, I immediately, although surprisingly, formed an intensely personal connection with each of the writers’ thoughts that provided a fascinating look into the creative psyche.” Philip Szporer, Montreal-based writer, lecturer and filmmaker: “The first person accounts of creativity and process captures the zeitgeist and the lively pulse of an expanding arts scene.” Artists included in the Book: Tim Tate Judy Byron Dana Tai Soon Burgess Rebecca Silberman Matt Sesow Liz Lescault Michael Fischerkeller Rosemary Covey Judith Peck Joan Belmar Ethelbert Miller Daniel Barbiero Ellen Hill J T Kirkland Jane Franklin Sherill Annne Gross Tehreema Mitha Michele de la Menardiere Kevin Platte Prudence Bonds Daniel Burkholder Gesel Mason Aysha Upchurch Kelly Mayfield <...
