Rachel Otwell curated the podcast which provided full-length stories and follow-ups, links to other reports, and conversations with you.This podcast contained a range of stories from the world of arts & culture, from visual art to Springfield's DIY music scene, to profiles of interesting local characters. The podcast was about what makes artists tick, and the diverse culture that exists within our community.

The Scene With Artists/Curators Allison Lacher & Jeff Robinson

This week we're joined by Allison Lacher & Jeff Robinson - two instrumental forces in bringing contemporary and provocative artwork to the central Illinois region. 

The pair run the UIS Visual Arts Gallery and also curate for the DEMO Project in Springfield, which they co-founded. Their own installation work is currently causing collaboration in downtown Bloomington, tune in to hear more!

Also this week, we discuss: a documentary on James Baldwin (which you can see at The Art Theatre Co-op in Champaign), a disco dance party at the Lincoln Library in Springfield Friday 4-6, and an EPSOM/Liz Fitz show on Friday night.
