Exploring Daniel Chester French at The MET

A two-day filming escapade to New York


On a recent two-day shoot in NYC with had an opportunity to meet Thayer Tolles, Marica F. Vilcek Curator of American Painting and Sculpture, and Eve Kahn, anindependent scholar specializing in art and architectural history, design, and preservation, and frequent collaborator with Antiques Magazine and The New York Times. The conversation with Tolles was particularly focused on Daniel Chester French’s connection to the MET, while the focus of our visit with Eve Kahn’s dealt primarily with the figure of the legendary African American model Hettie Anderson.

While in New York, we were also able to slip one more under the wire for Black Fiddlers (currently in postproduction) with an interview with Henrique Prince from The Ebony Hillbillies. The interview and performance took place at the Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem and we’re hoping to report on that shoot as soon as we get an opportunity to edit a preview sequence.
