Gus Gordon, executive director of the Hoogland Center for the Arts, joins Bea Bonner for an update on how the facility and its programs are faring during the pandemic. The Hoogland's ballerinas, musicians, magicians, actors, and painters — all are housed within its 80,000 square foot facility. Maintaining the facility is a costly, even without shows in production.

Originally aired May 5, 2021.
