This episode of State of the Arts features Art St. Louis, an organization that nurtures the careers of talented visual artists. Host Paul Schankman interviews Art St. Louis Executive Director Chandler Branch. We remember Bob Cassily, a creative visionary behind The City Museum and many works of public art, who died in a tragic accident. “In the Spotlight” for this episode of State of the Arts is Stray Dog Theatre, a feisty small theatre group with a dedication to outreach. Also the diverse roots of the city of Kirkwood are explored in an exhibit that documents the lives of early African-American residents. And so much more!

State of the Arts is St. Louis’ only program devoted to the region’s vibrant arts community, taking audiences behind the scenes to meet the artists, writers, and performers who call St. Louis home.
