See the Sky w/Kate MacDonnell

Episode Summary

I talk with yogi and artist Kate MacDonnell.

Episode Notes

In this episode, I talk with yogi and artist Kate MacDonnell. Kate lives, teaches, and creates in Washington D.C. Kate has had solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums nationally and internationally including a two-person show in Tokyo this past summer. She was interviewed on NPR’s Morning Edition for her work in the collaborative project, she has received numerous grants, and has been a visiting artist and guest lecturer at George Washington University, Virginia Commonwealth University, St. Mary's College of Maryland, and the Corcoran College of Art and Design. I got to talk to Kate about her yoga, her art, and the place they come together. The conversation touched on lots of topics close to my heart. I hope you enjoy it too!

I mention 5 Things but on air, I only mention 3 of the people who participated. It was a much bigger group of artists, curated by James Huckenpahler, and the archive lives here. I did find an archive of Now:Here:This, curated by me, but it only exists, readily, in index form. Clicking on dates under any artist's name will bring up an instance of the project.

I mention a gratitude quote: “Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
