Ever since the first cave artist sketched the first "Saber Tooth Tiger Bites Man" picture thousands of years ago, man has been using art to interpret the news. Some of it, when the art comes before the message, is very good art; some of it, when the message comes first, is not so good.
This program, hosted by Off-Ramp's John Rabe, will look not only at how artists interpret the news the media puts out – politics, war, global warming, the economy, immigration, and pop culture – but ask what makes this art good or bad.
The Art of News will also feature an art exhibit from artists who interpret the news in their art, including Shepard Fairey, Edward Walton Wilcox, Enrique Castrejon, Lalo Alcaraz, and more.
