I must admit, I was a tad cautious about letting everyone know we had done a segment with WHYY for Coming of Age. We had just completed an interview with the NY Times which I trumpeted to all “Hey… be on the lookout.” Alas! The article ran in the Times, but we were cut. So, lesson learned. I held my breath and didn’t say much of anything until we could actually provide the “real deal” link.
As promised the audio aired yesterday on 90.9 FM. But when we saw the combined audio with stills (which really looked like video at times) we were truly honored and thrilled. First, I think the WHYY team is a real crackerjack team. Talented combo. Kudos for doing a really amazing piece. You should become members of MAAG!
More important…they captured the essence of what MAAG is and what we stand for. We are a community based, artist driven, cooperative resource center. We look to provide opportunities for member artists to create, sell, exhibit and teach. We celebrate the abundance and diversity of Northwest artists and art lovers. We focus primarily, but not exclusively, on Germantown, Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill. We embrace all who cross our doors. We are multigenerational, multicultural, lgbt lovin’ artists who serve all ages, both young and old. We seek to promote creativity and self expression in our community.
But most of all, we’re determined to make this happen. We are, after all, dreamers. And Arleen and I are following our dreams together.
So check out the interview…
PS We should be starting construction of Phase 1 soon. Stay tuned. You’ll be the first to know.
