Avenue Of The Arts

Tomeka Weatherspoon

In Friday's Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with show producer Stephen Steigman on a lawn outside the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts where one of the installations for this year's Avenue of the Arts is located.

Joining Stephen are Porter Arneill from the Municipal Art Commission and artist Jarrett Mellenbruch, whose installation, "Float" provides a bit of rest from the hustle and bustle of downtown life and conventionering.

To learn more about the Avenue of the Arts exhibition, read Tomeka Weatherspoon's report.


As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
Stephen Steigman is director of Classical KC and chief of broadcast operations for KCUR 89.3 and 91.9 Classical KC. You can email him at stephen@kcur.org.
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
