Green Mountain Daily Names Meg Hammond Arts impresario
In their December 10th article, "Good Santa, Evil Santa, Coal in the Stocking," a holiday-themed edition of their usual Monday feature "Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down..." Green Mountain Daily bloggers give Meg Hammond a thumbs up as Central Vermont's arts impresario!
Arts impresario Meg Hammond, for continuing to bring creative cultural activities to central Vermont. Hammond and partner Ben T. Matchstick were the team behind the beloved and lamented Langdon Street Cafe, which maintained an insane schedule of concerts and other activities in a tiny Montpelier space.
Hammond is now Events Manager at Goddard College, and has amped up Goddard's profile in the local cultural scene. She's organized a really interesting series of concerts at Goddard's Haybarn Theatre (coming in January: jazz legend Archie Shepp!!!) and she's scheduling special exhibits at the Goddard Art Gallery in downtown Montpelier. Its latest is a showing by Vermont sculptors Kat Clear and Torin Porter; before that, there was a show of political art by Peter Schumann and the Bread & Puppet Theater. I'm glad she's found a new outlet for her talents.
