Once a nuclear missle silo, now a site for art

Listen to this story
Dozens of artists in the Tri-Lakes area will open their doors to visitors this weekend. It's the annual Artists at Work Studio Tour and a chance to ask questions and view art being created up close in studios in Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake.

Alexander Michael, an architectural designer from Australia, is an artist-in-residence for the event. He'll be working on a series of fiberglass sculptures at 7444 Gallery in Saranac Lake this weekend, and then offering tours of his decommissioned North Country missile silo and part time home near Plattsburgh, next weekend.

Todd Moe caught up with him to talk about living in missile silo and designing art that explores religion, culture and creative expression.
