    surroundings I get up in the morning and I see all these deer she says There s this gang of turkeys and the other day a coyote ran across the road in front of me But this isn t just big because she lives in Brooklyn I grew up in the woods the Cape Cod native explains But not woods like this It reawakens this visceral connection with nature says Susan Moody a cook at the colony Evidence of that connection she adds can be found in the art to illustrate her point she lists off birds that live in the area and matches them to musical pieces composed at MacDowell She even whistles a few bars and imitates the birdcalls Amy Beach s A Hermit Thrush at Morning of course includes the hermit thrush s song To a Wild Rose by Edward MacDowell himself the red throated sparrow and so on with Leonard Bernstein Aaron Copland who stayed at MacDowell eight times and was the colony s president from 1961 to 1968 and their respective birds Besides bird inspired songs the art created at the colony includes such notables as the plays Our Town inspired by the town of Peterborough by Thornton Wilder and Porgy and Bess by DuBose and Dorothy Heyward who met at MacDowell Novels written at MacDowell include The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather and The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen Josh Marston worked on his 2005 film Maria Full of Grace and Scott Frank Michael Korie and Doug Wright wrote the musical Grey Gardens Past fellows or colonists have earned a total 69 Pulitzer Prizes and numerous Guggenheim Fellowships Genius Awards Grammys Emmys Tonys and National Book Awards And in 1997 the colony itself was awarded the National Medal of Arts Clearly the Peterborough idea as Marian and Edward MacDowell called it was a very good one I visited the MacDowell Colony on Medal Day the one day a year when the public is allowed into the colony to look around and talk to the artists This year with the crowd spilling out of the giant tent during the ceremony to honor jazz saxophonist and composer Sonny Rollins I overheard MacDowell s recently retired president Carter Wiseman observe I ve never seen it this crowded Though friendly and willing to share their work and answer questions a few of the artists looked a little unsettled by the masses descending on what only hours before was a peaceful near wilderness and I overheard one visitor apologize to interdisciplinary artist Stephen Fiehn half of the performance duo Cupola Bobber This must be pretty jarring since you kind of come here to get away from people Febos noted while describing the wildlife that the field in front of her studio only has deer in it when it s not a parking lot While Medal Day is a great opportunity for people to meet these artists and see

  • CNH Executive Director Talks RGGI on NH Public Radio | Conservation New Hampshire
    Brien was joined by NHPR reporter Amy Quinton and Director Daniel Simmons from the Institute for Energy Research in the RGGI discussion RGGI is a regional cap and trade system instituted by ten northeastern states to help limit carbon emissions encourage innovation in alternative energy and improve energy efficiency The system was first proposed by then Governor of New York George Pataki a Republican Several other Republican governors were instrumental in organizing support Despite this Republicans legislators in NH have proposed to remove the state from participation Such a proposal O Brien pointed out would put New Hampshire in a lose lose situation As the cost of complying with carbon emission goals is reflected in the market price for electricity NH electricity customers would still pay for the program However by removing itself NH would no longer be able to draw any benefits O Brien indicated that in the 2 years the program has been in existence and despite a 2010 raid on the dedicated RGGI funds to cover general budget shortfalls many projects have already been executed across the state improving energy efficiency and saving citizens money The show s audience backed up this claim with a caller from Temple citing her town s experience reducing energy costs through RGGI project funding O Brien went on to say that RGGI helps us keep more money in state supporting the local economy and small businesses out of the billions of dollars we send out to support our fossil fuel habits The January 11th edition of The Exchange is available online And for further discussion of the economic impact of RGGI and other environmental policy issues be sure to join us at our Green Eggs and New HAMpshire Environmental Policy Breakfast on January 26th Comment RSS Trackback Leave a Reply Click
