This week on Artworks:

We’ll take a tour of one of the artistic hubs of Vigo County, Terre Haute’s Swope Art Museum. Yael Ksander visits to sample the gems of the museum’s permanent collection.

Also on the program, from our Street Sounds series, we’ll hear from two brothers who have become a regular fixture at the Bloomington Farmers Market and on the sidewalks of Kirkwood Avenue.

And we’ll wrap up the show with a new recurring series detailing the exciting world of indie rock in south-central Indiana with guest contributor Michael Kapinus.
