Art Rocks!

Meet figurative sculptor Becky Gottsegen of Baton Rouge, who has developed an incredible ability of working with clay to capture the likenesses of people. Alanis Morissette’s album, Jagged Little Pill gets new life, more than 20 years after it was first released. We visit with Ohio artist Jeff Vollmer, who sculpts intricate and puzzling wooden boxes. Plus, in this week’s Louisiana Treasures segment, experience the Chitimacha Powwow, an annual celebration of native cultures, as expressed through music and traditional dance competitions.

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. Special thanks to media partner Country Roads Magazine.
