Oregon Art Beat

Ken Kesey

Art Beat visits Ken Kesey on his family farm near Eugene. He talks about writing and his current projects. He’s working on an art book about life in prison, and hand-painting the cardboard covers for a film he’s releasing on video. The video is called “Intrepid Traveler and his Merry Band of Pranksters Look for a Kool Place,” and it contains scenes from his famous 1964 bus ride as well as newer footage.

First Broadcast: 2000
