Seg. 1: Albert Bloch | Seg. 2: Calvin Arsenia

Segment 1: A new documentary explores the life of abstract expressionist painter Albert Bloch.

Albert Bloch lived the final decades of his life in Lawrence, Kansas. But at the height of his career, he was a member of a band of artists that helped create modernism in Europe.

  • Tim de Paepe, filmmaker, AB
  • David Cateforis, chair, KU Department of Art History


Segment 2: Calvin Arsenia's new album is a milestone in his professional and personal growth.

A Kansas City harpist and vocalist just recorded a new album with a star-studded band in a Los Angeles studio. It's a big step for the artist, not just as a musician but also as someone trying to live authentically, out loud. Hear Calvin Arsenia's story (and catch a little bit of the music from the album, too).
