Art Rocks! is LPB’s weekly series, hosted by James Fox-Smith, publisher of Country Roads Magazine that explores the broad spectrum of art! The series spotlights artists, performance, culture, literature, history and the impact of art in our world. Art Rocks! features Louisiana stories as well as segments from across the country. Each week, the Louisiana Arts Calendar highlights current events throughout our state, and Louisiana Treasures – offering a glimpse of items, styles and themes that are unique to Louisiana. The series aims to capture your imagination, introduce you to new artists, and offer close-up views from communities around the country and our own backyard, places where art truly rocks!
Fridays at 8:30pm and encores Saturdays at 5:30pm
This week on Art Rocks! Louisiana native Kimberly Holt Willis talks about the real people and places behind her books, My Louisiana Sky, When Zachary Beaver Came to Town, Dear Hank Williams and other works. We visit Cirio Collective Salon, a place where dancers have the freedom to create without restrictions. Clint Holmes discusses that inexplicable “thing” that makes him passionate about music and we travel to The Toytisserie Exhibit at the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. Plus, in our Louisiana Treasures segment, we’ll share the history behind Shreveport’s Antioch Baptist Church. Art Rocks! airs Saturday, November 19 at 5:30PM and is hosted by James Fox-Smith of Country Roads Magazine.
