"The Art of the Book" -- An Exhibition Now on View at the Zarrow Center in Downtown Tulsa

zarrow-book-photo.jpg
Aired on Monday, May 18th.

On this installment of StudioTulsa, we're talking about an engaging and multi-faceted little art exhibit on view at TU's Zarrow Center for Art and Education (at 124 East Brady Street, in downtown Tulsa) through June 28th. "The Art of the Book" offers more than 20 works that both explore and encapsulate the book as an art form -- from hand-crafted miniature volumes to book-inspired sculptures to re-purposed "altered book" creations. The show draws upon works from the University of Tulsa's McFarlin Library collection as well as a number of different pieces by nationally-recognized book-art artists, and you can learn more about this exhibit (and about other notable shows coming soon to the Zarrow Center's gallery space) at this link. Our guests are Michelle Martin, Associate Professor of Art / Printmaking at TU and the curator of "The Art of the Book," and Milissa Burkart, a Tulsa-based book-art artist who has a few works on display in this exhibit, and who works in the Special Collections Department at McFarlin Library.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
