Arts Interviews with Geniuses
posted by October 25 at 13:57 PMon
Couldn’t make it to the Genius Awards party on Saturday night? Made it to the party but didn’t get a chance to talk to the geniuses? Always wondered what James Longley thinks is the most overrated virtue, or what talent Jennifer Zeyl wishes she had, or what Jonathan Raban thinks is the lowest depth of misery?
Here, for your viewing and listening pleasure, are the 2006 Stranger Geniuses interviewed in the elevator of the Henry Art Gallery while the party roared on around them.
Here’s Lane Czaplinski and James Longley (winners for arts organization and film, respectively—with Brendan Kiley standing between them).
Here’s Lead Pencil Studio (visual art). That laughter is Jen Graves’s.
Here’s Jennifer Zeyl (theater).
And—my personal favorite—here’s Jonathan Raban (literature).
