Artists Echo in My Office

By: Catie Anderson, curator of education on September 5th, 2018

Woodson Art Museum staff members are working tirelessly preparing for the Birds in Art opening weekend – from gallery and Art Park installations to program preparations and event logistics – our to-do lists are long, but thankfully, our energy levels are high. One of my favorite exhibition preparations is editing videos for the Museum’s audio tour app.

The Woodson’s audio tour is a popular and well-used interpretive tool visitors can access to learn more about artwork on view in the galleries and gardens.

The Museum’s Birds in Art audio tour features artists sharing the stories behind their artwork. The content is provided by exhibition artists, who self-record talking about their art and then send me audio files along with images related to their artwork, including reference materials, process photos, or shots of their studios. My job is to edit their audio recordings and produce videos incorporating visuals to help illustrate the verbal descriptions.

To preview this fall’s app, check out the two videos below featuring insights from artists Kris Parins and Nicholas Wilson.

When next at the Museum, check out a free iPod touch to use in the galleries and gardens or make a virtual visit anytime by downloading the free app on your smartphone or tablet. Search “Woodson Art Museum” in the App or Google Play Store.

Join us this weekend to celebrate the opening of the 2018 Birds in Art exhibition and help us welcome 71 artists and guests to the Museum and to the community. If opening weekend doesn’t mesh with your schedule, you have eleven weeks to view Birds in Art, Saturday, September 8 through Sunday, November 25.
