CBS News “Sunday Morning” airs this Sunday, January 13th!

January 7, 2008

I mentioned in my Summer 2007 Living Well Newsletter, that the CBS News “Sunday Morning” crew came and shot a profile segment on artist Hunt Slonem here in Louisiana.  I received an email today from his fabulous publicist (she is the one who made this happen), Robyn Liverant, that it is scheduled to air this Sunday, January 13th!  Show time starts at 8/9 CST/EST.  Not sure when the segment itself will air.

Can’t wait to see what correspondent Rita Braver  (who began her career in New Orleans) and her talented crew put together from days of shooting many locations, including Hunt’s NYC Studio that has hosted so many renowned parties and photoshoots, a dinner at Lakeside Plantation (just across the river from St. Francisville), his booksigning at the Marlborough Gallery, and his exhibit at the Ogden Museum in New Orleans (those colorful walls are from our Summer Nights & Magical Gems palettes).  

Who knows what will actually be in the 15 or so minutes they condensed from days of interviews and shooting, but one think I know for sure, it’s bound to be very interesting and colorful!  

I read in a recent article that Hunt Slonem “is considered to be one of the most successful living artists in the world, with paintings in the permanent collections of over 100 museums, including the Metropolitan, the Whitney and the Guggenheim.”   That in itself is amazing, but on  a personal note, I’m in awe of such an incredible spirit.
