Susannah Darrow is co-founder and executive director of BURNAWAY, a non-profit arts organization based in Atlanta. The group aims to provide critical coverage and create dialogue about arts in Atlanta and throughout the Southeast.

They have an online arts publication and a critic-in-residency program, among other offerings. In support of their goals, BURNAWAY recently won a $50,000 grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

WABE’s Jason Parker spoke with Darrow at the BURNAWAY offices in Castleberry Hill. They discussed the Warhol grant and her thoughts on art in Atlanta. Parker began the conversation by asking Darrow to explain the initiative behind the grant they received.
