The Arts Section 07/17/16

July 17th, 2016

 

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek previews the new documentary THE WITNESS.  Filmmaker James Solomon will talk about how some unanswered questions surrounding a 50-year-old crime became a documentary.  We’ll take a closer look at arts education in Illinois, Gary chatted with a member of the advocacy group Arts Alliance Illinois about new arts education standards.  WDCB's Brian O'Keefe will tell us about a new exhibit that celebrates the local companies behind some of those famous “as seen on T-V” products. And the Dueling Critics will join Gary a little later with a new review of an updated Stephen Sondheim musical.

 

Gary talked to New York-based filmmaker James Solomon about his new documentary THE WITNESS, which was 11 years in the making.
