Welcome to Accession. 

Accession is a podcast that wants to help you enjoy art more, and help you learn how to go to an art museum and hear the wonderful stories hidden in those beautiful lines. To do this, Accession brings art to life with sound. I use a variety of approaches, including history and biography, aesthetics and technique, story telling and poetry, as well music, audio drama, and sound design, to help bring you closer to the art and bring the art closer to you. Whether you’re an art historian or you’ve never been to an art museum; whether you’re listening from the comfort of home, on your commute in the car, or you’re joining me in the gallery; Accession brings all of the beauty of art museums and the little known stories of a personal guide right to the palm of your hand. 

To learn more about the show, you can visit my website at accession.fm.

Your support of Accession helps me to:

-Regularly produce the show and offset the costs associated
-Find new and diverse voices and stories to feature in the show
-Expand initiatives in the world of art education and engagement

Any amount of support helps, no matter how big or how small. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
