Mel begins this edition of Mixed Media by introducing Mexico City native Luis Dominguez, who is completing his first year as artistic director of the Lexington Ballet. Their conversation spotlights the May 2004 premiere of Cabbage Moon, a childrens ballet commissioned by the company. Luis also talks about his own background and his other plans for the Lexington Ballet. Formerly with the Performing Arts School of Metropolitan Toledo, Luis has been a principal dancer with the Dance Theatre of Harlem and was its first soloist of Latin origin. His wife, Nancy Cole-Dominguez, serves as the assistant artistic director at the Lexington Ballet.
Next, Goshens Christy Zurkuhlen shows some of her paintings. She has been painting for 18 years and specializes in portraits and equine art created with oil and pastel. While Christy is best known for her portraits of jockeys, including an award-winning portrait of Pat Day that appeared in The Blood-Horse, she also paints people of all walks of life.
Finally, we spotlight the 2003 Governors Awards in the Arts honorees.
