Provincetown Performance Artist Jay Critchley Finds an Unusual Path to Fame

 Irreverent. Visionary. Provocative. Jay Critchley’s performance art has been called many things. Since his reinvention as a “born-again artist,” Jay has made his own unique creative mark in Provincetown and beyond.

As he confronts his years of artwork for a retrospective, he muses on his unorthodox path to art – one that takes him through unemployment, a battle with town hall, and a love affair with sand.

 This piece came to us from our production partners at Atlantic Public Media through their media training program, The Transom Story Workshop in Woods Hole. Lucy Kang was a graduate of the Spring 2015 class.  You can find out more about that program at Transom.org
