Yaddo – the National Historic Landmark and privates artists’ colony in Saratoga Springs - will open this weekend for guided public tours for the first time in 3 years and only the 6th time in their history. Artists who have worked at Yaddo have won 71 Pulitzer Prizes, 29 MacArthur Fellowships, 68 National Book Awards, 42 National Book Critics Circle Awards and even a Nobel Prize to Saul Bellow.
This weekend you can see the very walls they stared at while waiting to create and the spaces that surrounded them while they ultimately did write, compose, choreograph, paint, print, sculpt and film.
In Monday Night Football, Cody Parkey hit a 36-yard field goal as time expired to complete Philadelphia's comeback in a 30-27 win over the Colts. Nick Foles hit Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard TD with 3:25 left and drove the 2-0 Eagles down field for the winning kick after the Colts went three-and-out. Andrew Luck put the Colts ahead in the fourth quarter with his third touchdown pass of the game, but his lone interception set up the Eagles' tying TD.
