May 2009 is a time to celebrate the multidisciplinary nature of Centrum's New Works Program with twenty Artists in Residence. The month begins with a workshop on illustration, journaling, and movement… then finishes with a presentation of traditional arts of India. Writers are well represented by David Haynes, author of six critically acclaimed novels and five children's books, and Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic who are widely considered leading commentators on race in the United States. Musician Stuart Dempster will be back with his entourage to record more work in the Fort Worden Cistern, and GAP Award recipient Miho Takekawa will continue work on her second CD celebrating Japanese female musicians. And we'll have several Washington State visual artists in residence, including Russel Jacqua Award recipients Kevin Bernstein and Robert Campbell, along with Jesse Watson.
