This week on Artworks,
It may be hot outside, but that doesn’t stop the foot traffic in downtown Bloomington or the buskers playing their music. Today we’ll hear from a visiting performer who tried his hand at busking on one of the busiest corners in town.
Also on the program,
We’ll hear from an IU professor who explains some of the influences behind today’s photojournalism.
