Outside Peter Acheson’s studio (2009)
This week’s episode is a Thanksgiving – inspired Road Trip Theme as Chris hit the open road last week.
Chris replays Michelle Hyun’s reflection on Tony Smith’s Highway moment from Dead Hare Radio Episode 28.
Chris reads an excerpt from an nterview with Tony Smith, conducted by Samual Wagstaff in 1966 in which Smith speaks about a revelation had on the NJ Turnpike. Links to the interview notes as they appear in Minimal Art, edited by Gregory Battcock can be found in pdf form on a Harvard website. Reference made in Sculpture Since 1945 by Andrew Causey on google books.
Next we eavesdrop on a conversation between Chris and the painter Peter Acheson (on MAYKR.com) while driving in a cargo van through Massachusetts and Connecticut in a driving rain storm.

3. Spiritually elevated; sublime.
