Sustainability lies close to home and abroad. Yael Ksander explores an exhibition of objects from the African continent that brings a global perspective to IU’s Fall 2010 Themester

Also on the program, we’ll learn how a Butler University art professor is working with Indiana University’s School of Fine Arts on an exhibition which includes workshops on food preserving, DIY solar cooking, raw food recipes and more!

Then Brent Wallarab talks with Artwork’s David Brent Johnson about a new competition for emerging jazz artists.

And George Walker speaks with IU Alum and up-and-coming opera singer, Angela Brown, who returns for a performance in Bloomington this week.
