Art Rocks!

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

Season 5!

This week on Art Rocks!:
We meet Lacombe, Louisiana artist Carol Hallock, who often paints the bayous and marshes that surround her waterfront home among other scenes unique to Louisiana. Her loose brush strokes capture the beauty of her native land and viewers imaginations. Hallock’s work can be found in the Louisiana Governor’s Mansion, as well as private and corporate collections across the country. Then, we find out what happens when a street artist collaborates with a choreographer to create a ballet. See excerpts from choreographer Justin Peck’s Heatscape as performed by the Miami City Ballet. Plus, in our Louisiana Treasures segment, join us at the Louisiana Museum of Natural History at LSU, home of the one of the largest university-based collection of birds in the country. (522)
