Veronica Kessenich, Executive Director of the Atlanta Contemporary, took a break from preparing for Art Party 2017 to take Peachy Keen on a behind the scenes tour of the capital improvements currently underway. We talked about her thwarted childhood dreams to become a dancer, her experiences as a student then professor at women's colleges, and her secret writing habits. 

She explains how she landed at the Contemporary, showing some love for her mentor, Fay Gold, along the way. And of course, she gives us the scoop on what to expect at Art Party.
