OF THE BIGHORNS
Video Interviews with 22 artists in the Bighorns
Beverly Kleiber: Producer, Interviewer
Edmond Allmond : Sound and Video editor, Music.
"After much lamenting that there wasn’t a videographer around in my grandfather’s day to record the “bigger-than-life” characters of that time, it slowly dawned on me that quite possibly, with a little looking about, I would find the most amazing artists gathered around the Bighorn Mountains here-and-now. And that they would be quite able and willing to tell their own story. That was how it started …
Then I decided that I wanted them at their most candid and unstudied, so the interviews could emerge as an intimate glimpse into their artistic life. So here are my 'unvarnished portraits.' I hope you enjoy them."
Beverly Kleiber, 2020
When my dear friend
emailed me with one
of her brilliant ideas
back in the fall of 2017,
it seemed simple enough.
'Ken, can you make a list
of say 10 living artists that
have been important to
The Brinton Museum and
art in the area like my
grandfather (Hans Kleiber)
was? I want to interview
them for posterity and
your archives.' After much
cogitating, I started my list,
then asked Beverly if I could expand it beyond 10 and was gladly granted permission to do so, hence we now have 22 of Beverly’s interviews that we will introduce throughout the upcoming months"
