The Arts Section spotlights creative people, events and ideas. Every week, WDCB's Gary Zidek shines a light on arts and culture in the Chicago area. The mission is to focus on stories within the arts community that aren't being told, with additional commentary and discussions on literature, music, film, food, special events and anything else creative.
You can listen to The Arts Section every Sunday 8:00 - 9:00 am on 90.9/90.7 FM or online at WDCB.org

Later in the program, Gary sits down with filmmaker Elizabeth Chomko to chat about her debut feature, WHAT THEY HAD. A The Dueling Critics, Kerry Reid and Jonathan Abarbanel, stop by to review Ike Holter’s new play RED REX. And then contributor Dennis Polkow asks Chicago Symphony Orchestra music director Riccardo Muti about an upcoming program at Symphony Center. All that, plus the weekly arts calendar.
