Bittman has starred in four television series, including Showtime’s Emmy-winning Years of Living Dangerously. He has written for nearly every major newspaper in the United States and many magazines, and has spoken at dozens of universities and conferences; his 2007 TED talk has more than a million views.

He has attended barbecue schools throughout the United States. He has studied with Ed Roith of the Kansas City Barbecue Society, Paul Kirk who has won over 500 competitions and Johnny Trigg, the "Godfather of Barbecue".

Democracy of the Land
Longtime Provincetown multi-media artist, performance artist, writer and activist will take a deep dive into his singular, penetrating work, and his historic exploration of the roots of the American landscape and its mythology. How does an artist, or anyone, tread on the Earth with the cultural, political and environmental stakes at an all time high? What is our narrative with the land? How do we occupy our ground? How do we make a stand?
