Next week on Artblog Radio – Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz on collecting the self-taught artists


Collecting came early in the marriage of Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz. She’s a respected artist and he’s a high-powered lawyer and emeritus chairman of Duane Morris LLP and together they’ve amassed a collection of work by lesser known self-taught artists as well as those well-known in the genre  — James Castle, Martin Ramirez, William Edmondson. The Bonovitzes live with the art they collect and have recently set up an educational foundation. Foundation STAART’s documentary movie about James Castle debuted at the 2008 Philadelphia International Film Festival. Below is a brief sample from our conversation with the collectors.  Listen next Monday for the full episode.
