Info Junkie: Amy Grant

By Staff Reports, posted Jul 17, 2020

Amy Grant

Owner, Art in Bloom Gallery


Grant has en­joyed interac­tive, 360-de­gree video tours of art galleries and museums during the COVID-19 pandemic, including Art in Bloom’s virtual tours at aibgal­lery.com, created by Steve Smith of Angle Pros of Wilmington.

She enjoys reading the Washington Post, New York Times as well as news and programming on WHQR, such as Around Town with Rhonda Bellamy.

“I enjoy reading local articles about the arts by John Staton in the StarNews and by Shea Carver and Gwenyfar Rohler in encore magazine,” Grant said.

Favorite websites include Art in Bloom’s Studio Views series as well as The Black on Black Project website.

“I regularly check the ‘Studio Views’ section to consider differ­ent perspectives and to cope with the isolation and mental fog of sheltering in place,” Grant said.

A favorite podcast is The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition and a favorite YouTube channel is Randy Rainbow Song Parodies.

Favorite movies include the Art in Bloom Gallery-produced short film Elizabeth Darrow: Be­lieving in the Process as well as the doc­umentary "Wilmington on Fire.”
“It is such a strange thing that truth is hidden in plain sight, and these documentaries have the potential to raise awareness and consciousness to contribute to real change,” she said.

Favorite apps are Zoom and GoT­oMeeting.
