As part of my research for the book, I drove to North Adams, MA today to meet Eric Rudd. He is one of the movers and shakers working to make a significant arts scene in the city. He came at a time when North Adams was severely depressed and business fled the city. He was able to purchase a mill and then a large church to display his art work and was instrumental in attracting artists to locate in the city.
While we were talking I was able to take several photos of him. He is very dynamic and has an interesting face.
I’m concentrating on my new book: A VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY WITH BETSY. (Betsy is my car.). This will be one of the stories.
