This week, on Artworks:
Annie Corrigan speaks with fashion design student Michelle Bartley. She’ll be one of seven designers submitting a garment made entirely of condoms to the first Condom Fashion Show.
Also on the program, bigger is not better for artist Althea Crome. Mia Partlow finds out what it takes to create miniatures, like two-inch tall sweaters and gloves that are less than half an inch.
George Walker speaks with bassist Robert Black whose recording Modern American Bass — WFIU’s CD of the week — presents a musical overview of the history of his instrument.
And, Rachel Lyon visits with the artists-historians of Bloomington Fading who have been documenting the city of Bloomington in an especially 21st century way.
