AZ "phones it in" with Quenton Baker & Stephanie Anne Johnson
Art Zone Phones It In 7/16/20

In this episode, we reprise our 2019 interview with poet Quenton Baker about "Ballast," his visually poetic exhibit at Frye Art Museum. Based on the true story of the successful revolt by enslaved persons aboard the ship Creole, "Ballast" is strikingly prescient to what is currently happening in the Black Lives Matter movement. Plus, a solo acoustic version of "American Blues," the brand new single from Stephanie Anne Johnson & The Hidogs. 

"Art Zone with Nancy Guppy" has temporarily morphed into "Art Zone Phones It In," a low-tech scrappy version filmed in the social distancing comfort of Nancy's condo. With Joe Guppy running camera (his iPhone), Nancy and her remote but mighty AZ team curate homegrown video performances by musicians, actors and comedians; present video interviews with artists, city leaders, and owners of art-based businesses; and feature laugh-out-loud moments like cooped-up cat roommates and Nancy giving Joe a much needed, and very bad, haircut.
