Segment 1: Meet a dean at Haskell Indian Nations University.

What does a dean do? We talk with Julia Good Fox about her work at Haskell — and what she tries to communicate about her school through her "Tweet-alongs."

Segment 2, beginning at 24:50: Looking back on the life of a Cuban artist.

Artist Belkis Ayon died young. But in the course of her short life, she made her mark in the art world with her printmaking technique and her perspective on the mythology behind gender and race identity in Cuba. The first full retrospective of her work since her death is currently on view at the Kemper Museum.

Nkame: A Retrospective of Cuban Printmaker Belkis Ayón (1967–1999), through Sunday, April 29 at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, 4420 Warwick Blvd., Kansas City, MO 64111, 816-753-5784.
