Art Rocks!

Meet Lake Charles artist Jeremy Price who discovered his love and ability for creating art while pursuing a degree in criminal justice. Today, Jeremy is helping preserve the familiar façades of his city, as well as transform otherwise blank walls into vibrant public art. We visit Florida sculptor Helen Harrison, who reveals the character of wood and found objects using color, texture, and shape, and then introduce you to the Broadway Dance Lab in New York City, a choreography incubator that gives theater dancers the resources they need to bring their visions to life. Plus, we’ll share the history of the 1911 Historic City Hall in Lake Charles, this week’s Louisiana Treasures. (episode #422)

Fridays at 8:30pm and encores Saturdays at 5:30pm

Season 5!

Coming this week on Art Rocks!
On Friday, June 22 at 8:30PM and Saturday, June 23 at 5:30PM on Art Rocks!, (episode #424), it’s the Blues edition! We meet two of the biggest musical talents to come out of Baton Rouge who are known throughout the nation. First, Grammy-nominated bluesman Kenny Neal tells us why he decided to move back to his hometown and about carrying on the music legacy of his father Raful Neal. Then, we meet Blues Hall-of-Famer Lazy Lester, originally from West Feliciana Parish, and who now resides in California. Only a handful of people know as much as Lazy Lester does about the early days of blues in the Capital City. He tells us how being in the right place at the right time launched his blues career. Then, Kenny Neal and Lazy Lester play the blues for us and reminisce about their experiences with the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, and other musical greats.
