Could you describe the nature of your interactive workshop? I believe we spoke briefly at the awards ceremony when you got your grant. My dad is 86 and grew up in Tottenville. He worked at the Atlantic Terra Cotta Works as a boy. Does that count as Tottenville? Anyway, he remembered these minute details about how they made terra cotta facades for buildings. I was thunderstruck. All these years and he never told me about it in such detail. All I had to do was ask the right question. He is pretty much home-bound, but if you would be interested in interviewing him, I'm sure he'd be more than happy to oblige.
