Depression-Era Photographs, IU Costume Studio, Church Musicians 3

This week on Artworks, photos from the Farm Securities Administration of the '30s, a trip the IU Costume Studio, and a trip to the organ loft!

This week on Artworks,

Linda Pisano heads up the costume design program for Indiana University’s department of Theatre and Drama. She and the folks in the IU Costume Studio are always ready for the next challenge when a stage director wants to make a statement. We’ll step inside the costume shop and find how they do it all seamlessly.

Also on the program,

This year’s recession is unlike any the country has seen since the great depression, so it’s all that more natural for us to look at the 1930’s for inspiration. This week we’ll take a look at the IU Art Museum exhibition of Depression-era photographs.

And fire up the blower, pull out all the stops, and prepare to put those fingers to work, it’s the centuries old profession of church organist in part three of our Church Musicians’ series.
