Keith Henry Brown—LIEDership ConversationKeith Henry Brown, illustrator and art director, talks with long-time friend (and birthday buddy) Derek Kwan, executive director of the Lied Center of Kansas. A prolific artist and designer, Keith has become even busier than usual during the pandemic.
Keith talks about several book projects, recent album covers and other work. In the midst of it all, he also started a new drawing series called “Internal Dilemma”—a visual diary of how he’s coping with these extreme and uncertain times.
The conversation concludes with Derek and Keith discussing how much they miss live music events and how different the experience can be when you’re able to “feel” the music.
