Photographer Mark Kidd recalls his first trip down the legendary Route 66, and how losing his camera along the way gave rise to a life spent driving in search of vanishing scenery. On this week’s Artworks, we’re speaking with artist and professional driver Mark Kidd about his exhibition of photographs, “Long Term Parking”, currently on view at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Art Center in Bloomington.
Also on the program, we explore why an arts organization might choose to identify as a non-profit organization when it could easily thrive as a for-profit business. In addition, A Place for Film reviews the short films that debuted at the Indy Film Fest; we feature a recording of new music for old instruments; and we explore alternative uses for stonecarving and strawberries.
