Episode No. 505 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features artists Joel Meyerowitz and Elizabeth James-Perry.
Damiani has published a new edition of Joel Meyerowitz‘s 1983 book “Wild Flowers.” The new, expanded edition includes pictures both from the 1983 book, and new pictures that expand on the ways in which Meyerowitz found flowers recurring throughout much of his work. Amazon and Indiebound offer it for around $55.
Meyerowitz came to prominence as a street photographer in the 1960s, was a leader in adopting color photography, and has published 26 books, including the classics Cape Light, St. Louis and the Arch, and Aftermath.
Along with Ekua Holmes, Elizabeth James-Perry has created a “Garden for Boston” outside the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s main, Huntington Avenue-facing entrance. The installations respond to Cyrus Dallin’s monumental bronze sculpture Appeal to the Great Spirit (1909) which has stood at the entrance to the museum for over 100 years. James-Perry is a Aquinnah Wampanoag artist whose work extends coastal Algonquian culture through craft and conceptual projects.
