A few arts-related stories from the past few weeks:

  • Great feature on “Southern Gentleman” Jesse Winchester ’66.  One additional bit of Winchester trivia for fans of The Wire (and if you aren’t, you should be): his song, Step by Step, plays during the montage sequence that closes Season One.  Pretty damn cool.
  • Rita Forte ’03, a/k/a DJ Backside, continues to receive positive media attention.  She was previously mentioned on Ephblog here and here.
  • David Turner ’97 received rave reviews for his supporting performance in Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, currently playing on Broadway.  At 1:41 of this video, you can see a clip of Turner, during which the reviewer extols his scene-stealing turn.
  • Famous Eph photographer Walker Evans (he dropped out prior to graduating) is featured in an exhibit highlighting the centennial of New York’s rapid transit system.
  • Williams recently installed a sculpture by Jenny Holzer on the Science Quad, part of a concerted effort to increase the presence of public art on campus.  Anyone have an opinion, or better yet, a photo?
  • Wilco is back in North Adams this summer for an encore of their tremendously successful Solid Sound festival.  Check out the line-up here.  I don’t know many of these bands beyond the headliners, but I have seen Jamie Lidell, and I recommend checking him out.
