Karen Schmidt: Cozy

The Audio Guide to the Artist's Installation

Karen Schmidt is a contemporary artist. For her installation “Cozy,” Karen covered the walls, floor and furniture of a jail cell at the Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site with a knitted sculpture. To produce this audio piece, I interviewed Schmidt and edited the recording. It’s included in “The Voices of Eastern State” Audio Tour so that visitors can hear the artist talking about her work while viewing it.
