Amateur Eyes, Guitar Festival and Competition, RockNRoll Prom

This week on Artworks, Amateur Eyes at the Kinsey Institute, IU's 1st Annual Guitar Fest and Competition, the Zero Hour Tango Fest, and the RockNRoll Prom.

This week on Artworks-

You could argue that the world of art is kept alive by the passion of its amateurs.  They tend to be its most outspoken advocates and most prolific collectors. Today we’ll visit an exhibition at the Kinsey Institute that is celebrating the works of some of these amateur artists.

Also on the program, Bloomington plays host to a group of young  musicians who will vie for the title of first prize winner at the first ever Indiana Guitar Festival and Competition.  Then we’ll slip on our dancing shoes for the Zero Hour Tango Fest and Boxcar Book’s RockNRollProm.

That’s all just ahead on Artworks.
