It’s the end of another year here on Artworks, a time when we take a look a back at all of the artists, performances, and events that have enriched our community. We’ll listen back to some of the most memorable features and interviews you’ve heard in 2010.
This week we’ll hear from author Michael Pollan who talks about his book “Food Rules” and explore sustainable art with a trip to Martinsville’s Art Sanctuary.
We’ll discover what keeps the IU Art Museum’s Jazz in July concert series so cool and refreshing after 20 years.
Also a conversation with an author who splits his time between New York City and Bloomington.
Then an international organist who has some big ideas for the King of Instruments.
And and we’ll hear from an author who sheds a little light on a time when needlepoint, embroidery and cross-stitch took on a more important role in society.
