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 Lafayette artist Francis X. Pavy, whose work stems from the southern storytelling tradition and involves folk-life and folklore of the local people. He shows us the prints, paintings, relief blocks and lithophanes he creates through traditional means and modern technology. Then, we see the work of internationally known designer Tim Harding, who makes large-scale textiles out of colorful Chinese silks and other vibrant materials. This week’s Louisiana Treasure is the Immaculate Conception Jesuit Church, a fixture in New Orleans for 160 years, with some of the most stunning architecture you will see anywhere. (512)
