About 1,300 arts lovers from around the region and around the country traveled to Peterborough, NH, and The MacDowell Colony for an afternoon celebrating the cultural contributions of filmmaker David Lynch, and the artmaking in process at MacDowell featuring the open studios of artists-in-residence. Each year we celebrate an artist who has made a significant impact on the culture and our artists-in-reidience open their studios so visitors can see where creative work happens.
