It’s TIME for the show Joseph Forbes. 

”Many of the backdrops are produced by the team of artists at Scenic Art Studios, who work out of a 15,000-square-foot space in the 1830s Regal Bag brick warehouse on the shores of the Hudson River in Newburgh, N.Y. During the winter, the artists watch bald eagles float by on ice floes. The workshop is a sanctuary for formerly starving artists.” - Eben Shapiro and Julia Lull

"The event was organized in the wake of the sexual-abuse and harassment scandals assailing so many industries and as rumors swept New York’s theater community that an exposé or exposés on Broadway abusers and harassers was about to be published."

Scenic Art Studios compassion to this cause led to a meeting the following day. "It is important to continue the conversation. It is up to...

Forbes first discovered his love for theatre through an extra credit assignment for his college English class: volunteer ushering for the school production of Look Homeward Angel. Immediately hooked, he began studying scenic design at the University of North Carolina. “[My teacher] would put a backdrop down on the stage floor and we would all gather around between classes and sit there just awestruck while this man painted,” he says. “I think that’s where I got the love of backdrops from.”

But it would be a few years before Forbes realized his lov...
