Cleveland Arts Prize; TMC Host Robert Osborne; Artist Mike Elsass
Nominations for the 2015 Cleveland Arts Prize opened this month and will close February 28th. Over the next few weeks, we’ll share stories from past Arts Prize winners who've enriched our lives. In this episode, we present Julian Stanczak, the 1969 Winner for Visual Arts, Artist Andrea Levy the 2013 Mid-Career winner in Design and the 2012 lifetime achievement winner for music, Robert Kidney.
In April of 1994, Ted Turner stood at a podium in Times Square and threw a switch launching Turner Classic Movies. Since that time, Robert Osborne has become the face of the popular cable network. On the eve of Osborne’s 20th anniversary as TCM host, we share part of a conversation with him when he was in town for an exhibition at Kent State University's Fashion School.
Cincinnati artist Mike Elsass has become quite a success, despite his unorthodox approach of paint first and think about it later! His story comes to us from our PBS affiliate CET in Cincinnati for our ongoing series Applause America.
