People, Places, Things - A Short By Lesa Dowdy

Nashville Metro Archives’ Audiovisual Heritage Center (AVHC), in collaboration with Centennial Park Conservancy and the Parthenon, are pleased to announce the second annual Archives Artist in Residence (AIR) Program. This unique program explores the roles of artist and archivist and seeks to break down walls between archives and the communities they serve.

Artist Lesa Dowdy was invited to incorporate historic audiovisual recordings at the AVHC in the creation of a new work to premiere at the Parthenon as part of Centennial Park Conservancy’s ECHO chamber music series. Lesa worked with Metro archivists to choose endangered analog audiovisual materials for preservation, some of which have not been seen in decades. Lesa also collaborated with composer Benjamin Chakoian Jones and INTERSECTION ensemble from the ECHO series and created music recorded at the Parthenon for the new work.

Nashville Metro Archives’ Audiovisual Heritage Center Centennial Park are pleased to announce the premiere of People, Places, Things - A Short by Lesa Dowdy that originally aired on December 8 at noon (CST) on Centennial Park Conservancy's Facebook and YouTube channels.
