In this issue: Works in Progress
The real work of art happens long before a finished piece hits the stage, or page, or gallery walls - the gritty, day-to-day reality of art-making is in the roil of development, the sweat of conception, and the trial and error of execution before an artist settles on just the right path. Featured articles in this issue celebrate that process: from an artistic director's passion for fostering the development of playwrights, to dancers who fearlessly leap from familiar territory to experiment with something new, or architects who find their vision, not in grand public projects, but in pursuit of the perfect rustic cabin in the woods.
