Headlands Center for the Arts Turns 30Download audio (MP3)
A writer who sets up rock concerts for gorillas. A former bicycle engineer who makes art out of scrub brushes and rope swings. A man who designs natural "lightbulbs" with roots and dirt. Those are some of the creative minds who are part of the Artists Programs at Headlands Center for the Arts, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this week. We look at the history of the center, and talk to the artists who find inspiration in the old military fort nestled in the Marin Headlands.
