    Instrumenthead | Parthenon | Arts Break | NPT

    (funky bass line) – [Michael Weintrob] Instrument Head is a project that I’ve been working on that spans my whole entire career. It’s kind of my art project that took on a life of it’s own. When I was in college, I was the house photographer at the Aggie Theater and I would take photographs of the bands when they were performing and I would go back stage and take portraits of the band and on this particular day I took a portrait of the Derek’s Trucks band. The bass player came running now with his bass and I said do something crazy. I don’t know, put your bass down…

    ◄ Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco [HD] ►

    Welcome to the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts. Set in an idyllic park, the palace has a rich history and is today an important part of San Francisco’s image. The palace was originally built for the Panama-Pacific International Exhibition which was held in San Francisco in year 1915. The purpose of the exhibition was partly to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal as well as the city’s recovery from the 1906 earthquake and fires. The expo lasted for almost 300 days and the exhibition buildings extended about a mile along the shore. The buildings consisted of 11 exhibit palaces, showcasing objects from all corners of the world. Just like…

    30TH ANNIVERSARY — Halsey Institute at the College of Charleston

    (horse clopping) (engine screaming) (horse clopping) (church bells ring) (engine whirring) – [Voiceover] I grew up here in Charleston and the art I was surrounded by was mostly things like landscapes and paintings of architectural landmarks, ducks. (pinging music) There wasn’t a lot of progressive, contemporary art, and the Halsey is a great place, because it is showing an alternative to what the cliches of Charleston art are. My experience with the Halsey is that the shows here are unique to anything else you’re gonna see in Charleston and potentially anywhere. – The Halsey is a contemporary art museum, in Charleston, South Carolina. It’s part of the College of Charleston…

    The transformative power of classical music | Benjamin Zander

    Probably a lot of you know the story of the two salesmen who went down to Africa in the 1900s. They were sent down to find if there was any opportunity for selling shoes, and they wrote telegrams back to Manchester. And one of them wrote, “Situation hopeless. Stop. They don’t wear shoes.” And the other one wrote, “Glorious opportunity. They don’t have any shoes yet.” (Laughter) Now, there’s a similar situation in the classical music world, because there are some people who think that classical music is dying. And there are some of us who think you ain’t seen nothing yet. And rather than go into statistics and trends,…

    Van Jones & Favianna Rodriguez Put Artists of Color at Heart of Environmental Movement | KQED Arts

    – [Voiceover] Everybody together. – [Favianna] A lot of the artists in the climate change movement are collaborating with communities that are phasing off, with the impacts of climate. – We’re fighting. – For so long, when you think of environmentalists, you think of a white guy in birkenstocks and yet communities of color often have dirtier air, dirtier water, refineries. – First of all, it’s a very powerful analysis. I know your work, I’ve known you for almost, well, you look so young, I can’t tell how many years, but I’ve known you for a lot of years. – Yes. – Why are you using art? What’s the role…
