In this episode, CC’s Ony Anukem sits down for a conversation with award-winning author, historian and art critic, Tyler Green. Tyler is also the producer/host of The Modern Art Notes podcast, described by The Washington Post as “one of the great resources for all art lovers.” Tyler is an avid Creative Commoner, and since launching the podcast in 2011, it has been released, licensed CC BY-NC-ND 3.0.

Tyler recently published his latest book ‘Emerson’s Nature and the Artists,’ which brings together a selection of 75 artistic works in dialog with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s 1836 Nature essay for the first time. All of the artworks in the book were sourced from art museums and libraries with open access policies. Tyler offers his own compelling insights into Nature through new research into how Emerson’s art experiences influenced the essay, and in turn how it informed American art well into the twentieth century. In the episode, we discuss Emerson’s understanding of landscape and the public commons, and how it is still relevant to Creative Commons and the broader open movement today. Tyler shares top tips from a decades worth of podcasting experience and much more.
