Sharon

SHARON — In September, the renowned American artist Jasper Johns announced plans to eventually turn his estate in Sharon into a retreat for artists.

According to the plan he presented to the Sharon Planning and Zoning Commission, the retreat would be similar to Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., which has hosted artists including Truman Capote, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath and David Foster Wallace, and the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, N.H., which has hosted artists including Leonard Bernstein, Thornton Wilder, James Baldwin, Michael Chabon and Meredith Monk.
