This week, Art and Soul is about the vibrant visual arts scene in our area.  89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry is joined by Omari Rush, executive director of Culturesource and chair of the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.  They are also joined by an organizer of the upcoming Threads All Arts Festival in Ypsilanti, Nicole Patrick.

The Threads All Arts Festival is taking place March 10 and 11 at the Ypsilanti Freighthouse in Ypsilanti.  There will be 45 live performances, 29 gallery artists, and food and drink vendors.

In its second iteration, Threads aspires to curate an impactful experience that provides exposure for artists of all mediums.  This work involves designing a space for artists and audiences to come together and share the quality and diversity of the southeastern Michigan creative community under one roof.
