Season 5 - Episode 514

click for larger image See the work of late North Louisiana artist, Clyde Connell, known for her sculptures that evoke ritualistic totems and paintings that employ primitive markings. Using beautiful, rusted relics, rocks, and red clay from her farm and field, her work is characterized by having empathy for those in the black community that endured suffering as she witnessed growing up. Then, we meet milliner Karen Morris, a Hong Kong native who creates her original hat designs in Minnesota and has a following throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States. Plus, Saint Katharine Drexel has long been admired as the woman who established Xavier University, the historically black university in New Orleans, long before integration. We’ll show you how the university is building on her legacy in this week’s Louisiana Treasure.
