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 Ruston artist M. Douglas Walton, who was in Nepal in 2015 when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake took the lives of almost 9,000 people. It was a devastating life-altering experience that created a spirituality in him that reveals itself through his paintings.

Whether it’s cutting video or mixing sound, renowned editor Paul Barnes has built an impressive career creating masterpieces of storytelling. He will share his process with us. And, if you have visited Baton Rouge’s Galvez Plaza, you were probably impressed by the sculpture surrounding the water feature by the late Frank Hayden. One of Hayden’s former students, Baton Rouge artist Ben Peabody, discusses this work with us.

Art Rocks! is hosted by James Fox-Smith, Publisher of Country Roads Magazine. Current and past ART ROCKS! episodes are also here. 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.
