We kicked off the show talking with LVA's Ehren Reed about the Call For Artists for the Artxfm Mural!!! Then Costume Designer Donna Lawrence-Downs was our guest on LVA's Artebella On The Radio. This is an example of her work, from last summer's Richard II for KY Shakespeare. Tune in each week to WXOX 97.1 FM/ A R T x F M.com, 10am Thursdays.
While LVA and Louisville Ballet have been collaborating to bring Human Abstract to the Kentucky Center, their education teams have been working with the students at Newcomer Academy and The Academy @ Shawnee on a student-led version of the project! Louisville Ballet led students at Newcomer through the process of planning the choreography for their own performance interpreting William Blake's Human Abstract while LVA helped Shawnee visual art students conceptualize and build sets to go along with the piece. The result is breathtaking— performances were held at The Academy @ Shawnee as well as at The Kentucky Center!
Lucas Jervies, choreographer of "Human Abstract," and Robert Curran, Artistic Director of Louisville Ballet joined us on PUBLIC, along with LVA Director Lindy Casebier, as we discussed the collaboration between Louisville Visual Art and the Louisville Ballet. Tune in to WXOX 97.1 FM or stream PUBLIC on each Thursday at 10AM.
