We at Generous Company love What Weekly. Not just because they continue to show an interest in what we do, but because it is one of the best places on the web to learn about what is going on in Baltimore’s art scene.
Last week they published a fantastic interview by Peter Davis with Generous Company Members and Beholder’s Share collaborators, David White, Mike Vandercook, Will Manning and Rebecca Eastman with great photos by Bobby Kintz.

Lots of people thinking about the brain and art…perhaps this will turn into the new revolution with virtual salons and artists beginning to stand with scientists–all on a journey to raise questions that will guide us into the next epoch.
