Chip Polston

Chip begins this edition with Nana Yaa Asantewaa, founder of the Louisville Arts Council. She talks about community projects sponsored by the council, including the Sankofa Arts Education Discovery Camps for children, grants for neighborhood arts projects, and the Louisville Arts Advisory Network. Known as “Mama Yaa,” Nana is also a storyteller who was featured in KET’s Telling Tales series.

Next, meet Xenia Pokrovsky, a Russian iconographic artist who once created her works in the Soviet Union when it was illegal to make them. One of the top five iconographic artists in the world, she came to Lexington this past summer to share the dying art with younger students.

Sharing art with young people is also the passion of our next guests. Samuel and Sandra Glazebrook, a couple in their 70s, moved to Owensboro from California to teach bluegrass music to schoolchildren. International Bluegrass Music Museum Executive Director Gabrielle Gray explains the vital role played by such volunteers at the Owensboro museum.

Throughout the program, New Albany, IN singer Tess Arkels and her band perform cuts from her CD Orphan of the Heart. Arkels’ sound is a mix of rock, folk, pop, and blues.

This program marked host Chip Polston’s last appearance on Mixed Media. Chip took a new position with the Kentucky Lottery in late fall 2003, and KET congratulates him and wishes him well.
