    Arts In: Douglas Kornfeld

    Arts In: Douglas Kornfeld

    Public artist Douglas Kornfeld tells the fascinating tale of how he created vibrant public artworks in New Orleans that became symbols of the city, part of parades – and will hopefully save lives if a major storm hits.

    Kornfeld talks with Barbara St. Clair about what it truly means to be an artist – and what it means to make work on a monumental scale, along with the logistics of massive installations. He shares how he found his way to large-scale public sculpture and explains how figuring out Photoshop at
    a time when people barely knew about it revved up his career.

    Arts In – Kirk Ke Wang

    Arts In – Kirk Ke Wang

    Abstract artist Kirk Ke Wang teaches at Eckerd College and his work is known internationally. His boldly abstract creations are colorful and striking – moving through painting, sculpture, photography, video, conceptual, performance and installation art. “Although oscillating between them, I intend to weave a tapestry of my vision of the world, led by a consistent thread – the fear of inexorable cataclysm.” Still, Kirk Ke Wang’s work often appears joyous.

    He shares the details behind several large-scale installations, and talks with host Barbara St. Clair about how he grew up in China during the cultural revolution – and learned both visual art and music from professors locked up in a labor camp, using water instead of ink to paint, and playing a keyboard drawn on a table while the professors sang the notes.
