Tune in to the Colorado Art Report, CPR's weekly arts show hosted by Chloe Veltman, for in-depth coverage of the Colorado culture scene.
Listen online here.
On this week's show:
A new public art piece in Durango has residents divided, and some critics are upset the community didn’t have more input before a committee selected the sculpture. CPR arts editor Chloe Veltman speaks with Jack Becker, a St. Paul-based public art consultant and national expert on public art legislation, about how much the public should be involved in this process.
CPR arts reporter Corey H. Jones investigates summer camps in Colorado that use arts and culture to connect adopted children to the heritage of their birthplaces.
A new exhibition at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art takes a reflective and somewhat critical look at sports in the 21st century. Chloe Veltman views the collection with Associated Press sports writer Pat Graham.
In this week’s “Random Acts of Culture” segment, Colorado author, organic farmer and old-time musician Kayann Short shares her artistic transformation in the wake of an unforeseen storm.
CPR's the Colorado Art Report airs on Fridays at 10.30 a.m. and 7.30 p.m. Tune in live or access online at any time.
