John Mason interviews

with 2 comments

Oral history is the best way to get the true story about an artist, straight from the source. I am very pleased to report that the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, conducted an interview with John Mason. John was recorded in conversation with Paul Smith.  A transcript can be viewed on the Archives of American Art website.

John Mason has also been interviewed by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp for Artscene Visual Radio, and the recording is available for download or podcast at the Artscene website.
