On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek talks to some of the people who helped launch Arts For Illinois, a new initiative created to help Illinois’ arts world in the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Gary also catches up with a programming officer at a Chicago-based foundation to learn more about the various ways non-profit arts and culture organizations are coping with the current public health emergency. Later, the Dueling Critics, Kerry Reid and Jonathan Abarbanel, stop by (remotely) to talk about the latest streaming theatrical offerings. And a look-back at a conversation with author Veronica Hinke, who wrote a Titanic inspired cook book.
