Willem Dafoe, Caravaggio restoration and Della Mae Dan Polletta catches up with Willem Dafoe and previews his appearance in Cleveland at the Cleveland Institute of Art's Cinematheque. Plus we hear more information from David C. Barnett on the local Caravaggio painting's restoration and get a live performance from Della Mae, an all-girl band that will perform at the Kent Stage Folk Festival.

Additional Information

The Cleveland Institute of Art‘s Cinematheque will host “An Evening with Willem Dafoe” Saturday, June 7 with a live appearance from the actor.

David C. Barnett tells us why the Cleveland Museum of Art‘s centuries-old Caravaggio painting restoration was a “high stakes loan deal.” Listen to the story that brought us to the refreshing of the artwork today.

Della Mae performs live and previews their performance at the Kent Folk Festival (which runs from from June 5 through 14) tonight at the Kent Stage .
