Description TRANSCRIPT


In this audio interview, Stuart Shedletsky relates his blossoming as an artist under the guidance of faculty members such as Marvin Israel, John Kacere and Paul Brach at Parsons School of Design in the 1960s. Much of the interview dwells on Shedletsky's approach to teaching and his desire to be an advocate for students. He also discusses Dean David C. Levy's administrative style, the importance of studying with practicing artists, and a project, "Still Working: Underknown Artists of Age in America." Interviewer Martica Sawin and Shedletsky discuss the careers of former students and exchange information about Parsons alumni who have died from AIDS-related complications.
