Art Rocks!

On Saturday, May 19 at 5:30PM on Art Rocks!, (episode #418), we meet Shreveport artist Rachel Stuart-Haas, whose paintings evoke the obvious and the ethereal worlds of her female subjects. Rachel likes to imagine that each artwork captures the subject’s ability to exist in both worlds at once. Opera directors often depend on their costumes to help convey the mood of their productions. We’ll show you what goes into the costume design process. Then, meet a man who plays Irish flute and combines it with Celtic music in an unexpected way. Plus, as this week’s Louisiana Treasure, we’re reminded why sculptor Frank Hayden has such a lasting legacy in Louisiana’s capital city. (418)


Fridays at 8:30pm and encores Saturdays at 5:30pm

Season 5!

Coming this week on Art Rocks!
On Saturday, May 26 at 5:30PM on Art Rocks!, (episode #420), we meet the artist who left perhaps the most visible and historical interpretation of what life was like in Louisiana from the late 1920s to the late 1940s, muralist Conrad Albrizio. What causes a museum and exhibit designer to suddenly try his hand at making wine? Jerry Eisterhold shares his story with us. And an Ohio wood-turner creates beautiful bowls from old logs. Plus, the compelling story behind LSU’s Memorial Tower, this week’s Louisiana Treasure.

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!

Major production funding for Art Rocks! The Series is provided by Georgia-Pacific Port Hudson Operations and Lamar Advertising Company. Special thanks to media partner Country Roads Magazine.
