The Yeti, John Green, and PBS Go On the Road
YouTube / The Art Assignment
If you're a fan of John Green (and you should be), you probably know "The Yeti," John's ever-present but rarely-photographed wife, whose real name is Sarah Urist Green. Now Sarah is taking center stage in a PBS Digital Studios production beginning in early 2014. And yes, John's on board (...creepily). It promises to be awesome. Behold The Yeti, in the Greens' native habitat, YouTube:
Sarah has been the curator of contemporary art at the Indianapolis Museum of Art since 2007. She's leaving the museum gig to bring art to the masses using the interwebs! You can follow the project, as Sarah says, on everything: Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. And you can bet I'll be covering the heck out of this when it begins in earnest. Get excited!
One last nerd note: John has been tweeting about this secret project for a while, yet it didn't leak. Yesterday he tweeted:
It's so rare that we successfully keep a secret. You are going to be genuinely surprised, and hopefully excited!— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 23, 2013
And this morning, of course he got back to tweeting about airports:
Sleepy in an airport. As usual. pic.twitter.com/J5E1U8gGMi— John Green (@realjohngreen) September 24, 2013
Stay sleepy and excited, John!
