Inside The Arts: Birdfoot's Ligeti Split Featuring Danny Driver, Guns In The Hands Of Artists

Feb 14, 2017

This week on Inside the Arts, the Birdfoot Festival continues its 6th season with an exploration of the music of composer György Ligeti in a two-concert mini festival it's calling Ligeti Split, featuring British classical pianist Danny Driver.  We catch up with Danny Driver and Birdfoot artistic director, violinist Jenna Sherry by phone.

And, as art mirrors life, artists and community leaders continue to bring attention to the issue of gun violence in New Orleans and across the nation. Artist and gallery owner Jonathan Ferrara joins us to talk about his new book, Guns in the Hands of Artists, which continues an arts project of the same title begun back in the 1990's.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.
