I swear, in the months leading up to the release of this episode of the PEMcast, which we’re calling Getting Outside, we had no idea that temperatures would reach 60 degrees on February 1. Perhaps right this minute, you’ve only returned from the outdoors, where you’ve felt the slightly hesitant heat of the returning sun and taken in a breath of soft spring-like air.

In this episode we celebrate how on target we’ve been with a global movement toward public art, which is pretty much always outside…in parks, walkways, city plazas and such. We look at three artists and three exhibitions that took us outdoors and beyond our walls. Stickwork: Patrick Dougherty, Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen and Branching Out: Trees as Art in the Art & Nature Center all led us into the fresh air.

But, first, we start with a local artist and arts reporter, Greg Cook, who finds solace in public spectacle. Which is why when things get tough, he puts on a little community event called The Saddest Parade in the World.

Join producers and hosts Chip Van Dyke, and me, Dinah Cardin for this fun episode of the PEMcast.
