At Salt

The Residency Class and many of our mentors visited the New York Times Magazine this week. We were regaled with stories by Kathy Ryan, Jessica Dimson and Amy Kellner on how they created the videos and Augmented Reality piece for this years Great Performers issue. We also learned how the magazine works and had a tour of the newsroom. Thank you Kathy, Jessica, Amy and Pia Peterson for giving us so much of your time!
