Joann Greco writes on fascinating people and ideas in design, architecture, urban planning, and the arts from her home in Bella Vista. A frequent contributor to Philadelphia Style, her articles have appeared everywhere from Art & Antiques to The Washington Post. In this edition, Greco explored the Andrew Wyeth Exhibit at Brandywine Conservancy on page 72.
Favorite piece of art? “I’ve written about art for 25 years, so there have been many, many pieces that have impressed me. Often, these have been photographs—i think of urban chroniclers like Weegee, Eugene Atget, and Berenice Abbott who capture the so-called ‘decisive moments’ of life in big cities like Paris and New York. These glimpses of the past have both a familiarity and an exoticness to them, and that’s always an interesting—and impactful— combination.”
