This week on Artworks,

Indiana University and The City of Bloomington will kick off Artsweek 2010 this weekend!  Begun as a single weekend in the fall of 1984, Artsweek has grown to 11 days of events, with each year focusing on a particular theme.  This year’s theme…Arts and the Environment.

This week we’ll take a look at a few of the events melding the natural world with the artistic.  Yaël Ksander visits the IU Art Museum for an exhibition of 42 faculty artists,  Connie Cook Glen previews her talk “The Composer’s Perception,” and Cardinal Stage Company’s Randy White stops by to discuss their latest production, The Drawer Boy.
