This Week on Art in Your Ear
William ‘Terry’ Fisher III was one of the lawyers who defended Shepard Fairey’s use of an AP image in his iconic Hope poster. He’s proposed an alternative way of funding arts. Terry lectured at the Tampa Museum of Art on Thursday night about it, and will speak again there on Friday night with a lecture, Defending Hope.
We will talk about intellectual property rights, and the ways the laws have, and haven’t adapted to the 21st century.
Also on today’s show, St. Pete College students painted, with artist Derek Donnelly, an award winning mural at the Gibbs (66 st/5 ave N) campus. Bonnie Kessler-Fouts and one of the student artists will chat about making the mural in advance of next Wednesday’s dedication ceremony.
A few weeks ago on Art in Your Ear
Laura Westley, author & playwright of War Virgin (book and play) came in to talk about her work, the military, her virginity, West Point and so much more, plus sang a lovely song (who knew she was an amazing singer???). She will be one of the people at the opening of the new Veterans Art Center Tampa Bay.
Oh and BTW –
I wrote an article about women in the arts (nationally and internationally – going to write about the local scene next week): http://www.wmnf.org/women-arts-not-great-news-21st-century/
