The featured artists will be singer-songwriter Adam Levy; performing artist Dylan Fresco; songwriter, writer and performer Elisa Korenne; architect Kent Simon; artist and author Lucy Rose Fischer; author Margie Newman; Matt Peiken, founding producer of 3-Minute Egg, the first daily video program that focused on a local arts scene; and photographer Sylvia Horwitz.
