Arts Alive! podcast: Katherine Pill, Museum of Fine Arts

Bill DeYoung



Our guest on today’s Arts Alive! podcast is Katherine Pill, Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg.

The conversation covers the MFA’s place in our “city of the arts” – constructed on Beach Drive in 1965, it was St. Pete’s very first art museum, and has continued to innovate, and keep pace with all those that have come after.

Pill, who joined the Museum of Fine Arts staff in 2013, also goes into details about the current exhibition, Never the Same Song. Lizzi Bougatsos (from New York) and Lonnie Holley (Georgia), artists who present found materials in unique, interpretive ways, collaborated on the one-of-a-kind exhibit.

Of Holley, who was present at the opening and will return (with and without Bougatsos) for additional events, Pill remarks: “He creates narratives with these objects. He has an entire visual lexicon, and everything is so symbolically important.”
