This week on Artworks,
Step inside the doors of Indiana University’s African American Arts Institute, where for nearly four decades students have been shaped for careers in music, dance, and culture.
Also on the program:
A conversation with the Indianapolis Symphony’s concertmaster Zach de Pue whose interests take him outside of the world of classical music.
Adam Schwartz speaks a writer-turned-psychotherapist who’s work focuses on getting Hollywood creative types sane.
Then we’ll learn how South-central Indiana played a pivotal role in the nineteenth century in establishing an artistic presence outside of the East Coast. Rachel Berenson Perry will talk about her book that details the efforts of those artists, including Hoosier native T.C. Steele.
And finally, David Brent Johnson will explore the life of an Hoosier-born jazz pianist whose career had him playing with the likes of Benny Goodman and Tony Bennet.
That’s all just ahead on Artworks.
