Dayton Region artist interviews
In May 2020, when artists and arts organizations were in the midst of adjusting to the impact of COVID-19 on the arts in the Dayton Region, Mike London, playwright and Montgomery County employee, took on the task of reaching out to artists, arts administrators, and leadership in Montgomery County. His goal was to chat via Zoom with a variety of local artists and creative people to allow others to get to know them in a new way – and understand that workplace contributions to the campaign at Montgomery County and ALL of our workplace sites are critical to not only the arts organizations, but to the many individuals that are supported by and aligned with these organizations.
We hope you enjoy the interviews below. We are thankful to Mike and all the participants in this project: Kyleen Downes, Scott Stoney, Boy Blue, Andy Snow, Elizabeth Ramsey, Yetunde Rodriguez, Morris Howard, Caitlin Cartwright, Sharon Short, Commissioner Judy Dodge, Kelsey Lee, Eva Buttacavoli, George Drake Jr., Noah Berry, Commissioner Carolyn Rice, Bing Davis, Gabrielle Sharp, Matt Burgy, Robb Willoughby, Debbie Blunden-Diggs, Neal Gittleman, Rick Burnette, Alyssa Hanson, Rachel Botting, Michael Roediger, Debbie Lieberman, Jes McMillan, and Michael Bashaw.
