Our Artist in the Making series continues as Yael Ksander speaks with MFA painting student Erin Castellan. She describes her journey back to academia after several years of living as a struggling artist.

Then, Poet Nikky Finney reads a poem from her Head Off And Split, which was awarded the 2011 National Book Award.

George Walker gives us his take on a new CD of music by Bach by young pianist Evan Shinners.

Walker also speaks with the director of the IU Department of Theater and Drama’s new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Gavin Cameron-Webb. He talks about the challenges he’s faced by setting the play on a Hollywood sound stage in the 1930s.
