The Arts of 2020 - A Year in Review Part I

In a year when there were almost no arts as we knew them, there was instead a plethora of arts as we had never seen before. In Part I of a 2-week Arts Year in Review, host Diana Moxon chats with 4 local arts leaders about what their highlights and reflections on the year. Alex George from Skylark Bookshop talks books, virtual book tours and community support; the Columbia Art League's Kelsey Hammond remembers some of her favorite art shows and reflects on the importance of us all deepening our mental stretch; Columbia Daily Tribune arts writer, Aarik Danielsen, looks back on some of his conversations and virtual events; and Talking Horse Production's Artistic Director, Adam Brietzke, talks about the theatre's monologue contest and how COVID shone a spotlight on the importance of the performing arts to so many people.
