Cosmic Convergence Festival

This week on Inside the Arts we'll talk with Tony Award-winning Broadway actress and singer Patti LuPone. You'll hear why you really shouldn't worry about the 2012 Mayan apocalypse. Then we'll take a peek at a specially curated exhibit of Impressionist paintings and visit a photo exhibit which pays homage to Latino workers who helped in the rebuilding of New Orleans post-Katrina.

If you're worried about the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse, you really shouldn't be. After all, one of the world's leading Ancient Astronaut Theorists has figured out how to prevent the destruction of the Earth. And he's doing it with his closest friends from the Krewe of Chewbacchus.

Sharon Litwin takes you to their leader on this week's Notes from New Orleans.
