Abby Schwartz, the interim director of The Skirball Museum at Cincinnati’s Hebrew Union College, joins our Anne Arenstein to talk about the current exhibit, The Boris Schatz Collection, an impressive display of bronze and wood reliefs, ivories, oils and sepia paintings by Boris Schatz (1867-1932), the noted artist and founder of the Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts.
Local sculptor Edward Casagrande and musician/composer Mark Macomber have teamed together for a unique artistic theatrical presentation entitled The Humanity Machine - Harvesting the Moment which will be performed at the Anderson Center Theater from November 16-26. As they explain to our Jane Durrell, it’s a merging of live music and art to tell “a small tale of a large love.”
There is a lot going on with Cincinnati’s Know Theatre – a production of Mike Bartlett’sBullis now running; another Fringe favorite, Petunia & Chicken, returns for two nights (November 10 and 11); and The Naughty List returns to Arnold’s Bar & Grill for the holidays. In addition, a change in the theatre’s leadership is beginning. Rick Pender is joined in studio by current Producing Artistic Director Eric Vosmeier and his successor, Andrew Hungerford, to discuss this big change and all the productions.
