Do-It-Together Art, Street Art From Cairo, New Harmony’s Appeal

This week we explore art made together and art with political meaning, we visit the "thin place" known as New Harmony, and the Bloomington Symphony blasts off.

This week on Artworks:

A conversation with a photographer who documented the explosion of public art in Cairo after the popular uprising last spring.

Also on the program,

A new book explores in words and images the mystical appeal of New Harmony, Indiana.

Performance Today recognizes the talent of a Jacobs School cellist.

And we’ll explore how the Do-It-Yourself movement born in the 1970s is being realized today.

That’s all just ahead on Artworks.
