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!

Season 5!

This week on Art Rocks!, we’re reliving Mardi Gras and pay a visit to Herb Roe, a painter who documents the “Courir ” or traditional pre-Lenten celebration of the Prairie Cajuns of Southwest Louisiana. The mythic qualities of his work place the participants into dream-like settings with his subjects costumed in vibrant splashes of color. We meet a string quartet and a ballet company, who have joined forces in Washington D.C. and are known for adding spontaneity to their collaborations. Plus, our Louisiana Treasures segment takes us to Rosedown Plantation, encompassing 374 acres in St. Francisville. (416)
