First, viewers meet painter Robert William Head, who lives in the woodlands of western Kentucky. A native of Springfield, Ill., Head earned an M.F.A. from Kent State University in 1965. From 1965 until 1997, Head taught painting and drawing at Murray State University, where he served as Chair of the Department of Arts for eleven years and is now Professor Emeritus. He has traveled throughout Africa, Asia, Mexico and Canada and in the last few years has spent time painting in Alaska, most frequently in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Next, Mixed Media takes to the streets for the 2004 National Community Arts Summit & Street Fair, with the theme "Building a World House through Community Arts." During the September event, which was hosted by the Louisville Arts Council, a diverse group of artists and patrons offered their views on why community arts are vital.
Finally, Mike Tracy, director of Jazz Studies at the University of Louisville's School of Music, discusses a program that has brought eight Russian jazz students to Louisville to study and perform with University of Louisville faculty as part of the Open World Program, which enables emerging Russian leaders to work with their U.S. counterparts. These Russian visitors join other University of Louisville jazz students to perform for Mixed Media.
