The Writing Academy Is Making White The New Black.
-By Mackenzie Harper
5 August, 2007:
The Donnybrook Writing Academy made history that will forever be treasured in the public’s collective psyche. This group of young, beautiful dukes and duchesses gathered at City Park for a picnic, some tennis, and even a human pyramid.
Onlookers clustered around the chain link court fences, snapping
photographs and cheering as the afternoon was brilliantly captured by
the lens of one Nina Barry I, a famous Pratt graduate from New York and Resident Artiste for the academy. Even The Legendary Sid Pink and filmmaker Joshua Shayne lent a hand in the conceptualization of this artful moment in time.
“I’ve never seen the Academy up close, only from afar on parade
floats and waving from ornate balconies in England,” said onlooker
Gerald Duncan, who does carpentry in the Arvada area. “They really are
exquisite, a sight to see.”
The Academy plans to have monthly or bi-monthly outings in the
future. The first batch of photos can be seen on the web site, but for
the full scoop, go to Nina Barry’s photography page.
