Art and Soul with Lisa Barry

Second Thursdays 4:35pm every month

Art and Soul is a new feature on 89.1 WEMU that will focus on our vibrant visual arts community. 

Lisa Barry, host of WEMU's All Things Considered, will work with Omari Rush from the Ann Arbor Art Center to bring you stories about the art and artists that you can see, feel, touch and experience right in your own neighborhood.  Each segment will feature an in depth look at a particular event, installation, artist, etc. along with news and tidbits about what's happening in art around town.  In addition to regular airings on WEMU, Art and Soul will also be a regular web feature with dynamic content with pictures and videos that will help bring the art to life.

This month on Art and Soul, we focus on the visual arts with Omari Rush, the Director of Community Education for the Ann Arbor Art Center:

There is an event coming up at the Ann Arbor Art center on March 23rd in which they will bring artists together and try to help them develop themselves as professionals by teaching them how to put their work and philosophy into writing. A  training session which will help artists learn about submitting proposals or getting people to understand their work better.
