Fifty Artists Write About Their Work is new book from the online arts magazine Bourgeon. The book compiles, in one place, the best articles from the magazine’s first five years. The book’s authors include fifty contemporary visual and performing artists, among whom are composer/musicians Daniel Barbiero and Jonathan Morris. The book is a project of the non-profit Day Eight. Bourgeon is a bridge-builder between contemporary artists and the general public, and a compliment to traditional arts journalism.
