Thanks to Randy Wind for covering for me when I was out sick. What a good guy. I’m on vacation for the next 2 weeks, so Mike Bagby aka Ktuf will be doing AiYE on Friday, July 22, and Sam Johnson will be doing the show on July 29. Thanks to both of them.\

Thanks to everyone who donated during the last drive to Art in Your Ear and WMNF. You are fantastic. Hearts forever.

This Friday (7/8) we had lots going on!

Mark Chambers (actor), Lisa Powers Tricomi (director) and Bonnie Agan (co-producer) came in to talk about Tru, a play opening up next week at the Studio @ 620 about Truman Capote. It’s a super interesting show.

In the second half of the show, we spoke with Joel Bates and Eugenie Bondurant of the 48 Hour Film Project. Make a movie start to finish in 48 hours! It sounds awesome. You can still sign up for it.

Last Friday we spoke with two artists from the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts about their show, New Visions 2016, Maria Bevilacqua and Amy Martz.

Fun video from Courtney Barnett with lots of cameos in it:





Shana Moulton has her first solo museum exhibition in the US at the MFA in St. Pete. She and Katherine Pill, the Curator of Contemporary Art there, will be on, and it is going to be a fun conversation. Her deliberately lo-fi videos and installations swirl around anxiety, self-improvement, self-help, self-regard, bio-feedback, feminism, feminine products, mass marketing, kitsch (oh so much kitsch) with a deep sense of humor and a sincere beauty of thought.

Here is one of her early videos, which brought her in front of art lovers’ eyes.

Weirdly into this track right now:


Here’s some artsy news:

New Museums

There will be two new museums in downtown St. Petersburg, probably by the end of 2017. Raymond James Financial chair Tom James and his wife Mary, very big supporters of the arts in the area, will be opening a museum,  The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art, in downtown St. Pete.
More information in this article by Lennie Bennett of the Tampa Bay Times and in this one by Margie Manning of the Tampa Bay Business Journal.

I can’t tell if it will be a private museum, like the Broad in Los Angeles, or if they are starting a non-profit organization.

The Two Red Roses Foundation, created by Tarpon Springs philanthropist and collector Rudy Ciccarello, is opening the American Arts & Crafts Movement Museum in downtown St. Pete. The parking garage is already built and active. The museum is slated to open in November of 2107.

The Ringling Museum in Sarasota opened The Center for Asian Art in May. Back to Lennie Bennett describing it, along with a tidbit about the controversy dogging it.


LRMA Appoints New Curator

Tarpon Springs, FL— Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art announces the appointment of Christine Renc-Carter as its new Curator. The Curator is responsible for researching, organizing, designing and helping to interpret exhibitions to the public, along with a host of administrative responsibilities including budgeting and other duties for the curatorial department. She is the second curator to be hired at LRMA, which opened in 2002, and follows Lynn Whitelaw who recently retired from this position. Ms. Renc-Carter will assume her duties at the museum on July 18, 2016.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Christine to LRMA,” said Director, Ann Larsen. “As part of St. Petersburg College, we have a strong commitment to engaging students and faculty through integrating the arts with other disciplines.  Christine has experience in doing just that, and her enthusiasm for reaching out to students as well as our other audiences will have great impact.”


Meagan Voeller, known locally for her arts writing and hosting WEDU’s arts show, has been appointed the curator at USFCAM.

The University of South Florida Institute for Research in Art (IRA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Megan Voeller as Curator at the USF Contemporary Art Museum (USFCAM). Voeller has been with USFCAM since 2010 in various curatorial capacities. Her appointment follows a national search.

Here is an example of innovative thinking in a university arts institute.


Art Keeble retires as head of the Hillsborough Arts Council

The Arts Council of Hillsborough has announced that they are doing a national search for a new arts council leader. Because why would the head of the local arts council need to know the area? Art has led the arts in Hillsborough County for 32 years. His impact on the arts locally cannot be underestimated.
