Boston’s Apollo, the lost sketches of John Singer Sargent

Episode 151: Today I talk to Nat Silver of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston Massachusetts. We talk about the Boston’s Apollo exhibition which features an unsung model of John Singer Sargent.

The exhibition is based on a series of Sargent’s sketches that the museum had in it’s archives. Nat and the team had to do some digging to find out who this model was. They unearthed some great discoveries.

Tony Elwood, Charlotte movie producer

Episode 151: Today I talk to Charlotte movie producer, Tony Elwood. We kind of go back in time 3 years ago to an exhibition on Camp Green, that he designed for the Levine Museum of the New South. This is a well-kept secret that even long-time Charlotteans don’t know about.

Even though it’s not a current exhibition, I thought it was especially relevant now, as their dealings with the Spanish Flu was not unlike our “new” normal with Covoid 19.
