David Greenberger is an Artist

So happy to have had the opportunity to get to know artist David Greenberger. David has been making work for the past 30 years centered around the process of aging, conducting powerful in-depth character studies and collaborations with local musicians. He has carried out extensive interviews with the elderly, making use of their stories to fuel the production of albums, books and comic books. I'm interested in the way he distributes the richness of his research through a variety of mass-media. The documentary film A King in Milwaukee, produced by fellow Nohl recipient Brad Lichtenstein, is a great intro to David's work and process. I highly encourage everyone to visit Duplex Planet and order the soon-to-be released CD completed during David's residency at the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboyan.

Was sad to have missed his performance with Paul Cebar at the Kohler this past Thursday. Would love to hear from anyone who happened to catch it...
