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!, meet Baton Rouge painter, sculptor and relief artist Ben Peabody, who has turned his battle with alcohol addiction into an expression of art highlighting the consequences of addiction and the joy of recovery. He hopes his new book will help others who may be struggling. We will visit the New York home of Edgar Allan Poe, a place where he wrote some of his most enduring works. And in this week’s Louisiana Treasure segment, we look back at the collaboration of the late, great artist John T. Scott and contemporary sculptor Martin Payton, whose Spirit House graces New Orleans. (518)
