This week on Artworks-
The paintings of local artist Joel Washington are identifiable around Bloomington by their vibrant portrayals of history’s greatest jazz and rock musicians – like Rosand Roland Kirk,Jimi Hendricks, and Frank Zappa. A later in the program, Artworks Megan Meyer speaks with the artist about his work.
Also on the program, Yael Ksander visits an exhibition at the Kinsey Gallery focusing on early childhood development that’s receiving some very strong reactions.
Then we’ll take a look at the long-lost art of letter writing with a group of letter literati who are keeping the practice alive.
And George Walker finds out how the spoken word can have a powerful impact on society.
