This week, "Art and Soul" is about the visual arts.  WEMU's Lisa Barry and state and local arts leader Omari Rush talk with Marie Klopf, founder and CEO of the Ann Arbor Art Center, about how they have been able to survive and even thrive during the current pandemic.  There is also discussion about two local art exhibits, both including the work of Ann Arbor artist John Gutoskey.

Jill Stefani-Wagner, a master pastel artist from Saline, travels around the world painting “en plein air,” or outdoors to create landscapes and cityscapes.  She tells The Arts Alliance’s Deb Polich and WEMU’s David Fair about her award-winning adventures on this edition of “creative.impact.”

Today is the first day of the four-day art fair in Ann Arbor, and while most artists will be selling their finished products, one local artist will be creating several new works of art as fair goers pass by.

89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry reports on this unique and somewhat unusual Art Fair event.
