Today, ‘More Songs About Buildings and Food’ turns 42 & we’re diving deep into its magnificence.
In a new exhibition at the RISD Museum of Art called America in View: Landscape Photography 1865 to Now, curator Jan Howard takes stock of the history of American landscape images, and the ways that photographers have revealed the complexities of american society, politics and economics through their examinations of the natural and built environments across the united states.
This week on the show my guest is Michelle Muldrow. Michelle's paintings deal with the American landscape and the myths, politics, and man made forces that shape it. She's painted urban swaths around los angeles and the sprawling exurbs and malls found in northern california as well as in and around cleveland ohio, where she moved in 2006 from san francisco.
