Art Rocks!

On Art Rocks! Friday, September 21 at 8:30PM and Saturday, September 22 at 5:30PM, we meet Ruston, Louisiana painter Nick Bustamante, who uses surrealism to tell stories that harken the passage of time. Filipino-Americans in Tampa Bay, Florida celebrate their culture through dance; we visit with some of the talented performers. Plus, take a tour with us of the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum in Shreveport. Its dioramas depict how people in Louisiana have lived over the centuries, from Native Americans at Poverty Point to farmers in the early 20th century.

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.
