That Would Be It: A Conversation with Jan Peterson,” curated by artist Phaedra Jean Taylor, is an exchange described as a “rich feast” originally shared with the collective known as Art House America. “While there was a lot of buzz and excitement about having Bono out to Lakeside, and while we hoped getting Eugene and Bono together would be inspiring and encouraging for many, the person I was most excited to share time with was Jan,” shares Taylor, noting her time with Peterson. “We talked together about hospitality, ministry, rhythm, art, home, food and the Sabbath, while we sat in her living room overlooking Flathead Lake.”
