Sounds of Summer

Posted on August 18, 2021
As during the last nine years, a good chunk of my August calendar is dedicated to audio. Work on the Woodson Art Museum’s audio tour app content is a seasonal commitment to highlight each changing exhibition throughout the year, and the stakes are highest for Birds in Art.

Making Museum Videos: Behind the Scenes

Posted on April 08, 2020
Behind the Woodson Art Museum’s app content, Catie is at the computer, turning audio into video. While the Woodson’s YouTube videos and audio-tour app are crafted to offer visitors – both onsite and remote – insights into artworks on view, the creation of the videos themselves presents an educational opportunity all its own.

Where Once There Was a Square, Now There Is a Story

Posted on December 11, 2019
Three new exhibitions opened Saturday at the Woodson Art Museum – Above the Fold: New Expressions in Origami, FaunaFold, and Alchemy Unfolding – transforming the freshly de-installed galleries from blank boxes into immersive spaces, a metamorphosis not unlike those generated by origami artists who create captivating, multidimensional designs from squares of paper.

The British Are Coming

Posted on August 28, 2019
The British are coming to galleries near you, and I for one can’t wait to see and hear them. Who doesn’t love a good accent? Like most Americans, I can’t help but succumb to an endearing English accent; just ask my BritBox, Acorn TV, and BBC America queues. My work editing Birds in Art audio tour app videos affords me the opportunity of listening to exhibition artists tell the stories behind their artwork. I endeavor to make sure the audio is clear, the content accessible, and the imagery complementary to the artists’ words. The app videos are made all the more memorable by the range of voices creating them and, this year, visitors can look forward to English accents courtesy of Alan Woollett and Kerry Miller.

Artists Echo in My Office

Posted on September 05, 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.

From One Beautiful Place to Another

Posted on June 13, 2018
Visit the Art Museum this summer to see The World According to Federico Uribe, and I invite you to further explore the immersive galleries and creative spirit of the artist by viewing the exhibition’s audio tour app videos. I hope you enjoy experiencing Federico Uribe’s artwork, both in the galleries and online, where beautiful summer getaways await you, too.

Bye, Bye, Summer; Hello, Birdie

Posted on August 23, 2017
Taking turns lamenting summer’s inevitable departure seems to be an unofficial, mid-August tradition amongst Woodson Art Museum staff members. “How is it already August?!” “Birds in Art can’t be just two weeks away.” “Where did my summer go?” The good news is Museum staff didn’t waste summer lounging around on the couch or acquiring poolside sunburns.

Indoor Birding and Art Appreciation

Posted on June 14, 2017
Being the Woodson Art Museum's resident expert – and I use that term loosely – on all things birds, I recently took on an Art 101 program designed as an indoor birding expedition among paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings in the south galleries.
