Art and About (April 2011)
So we’re midway through the 13th annual Ebertfest.
How’s it shaping up?
When first reading Robbie Pickering’s script for "Natural Selection," actress Rachael Harris immediately connected with the protagonist Linda.
But Harris figured there was no way she would land the role, that it would likely go to one of the "much greater actresses" out there.
Yesterday one of my Facebook friends posted this question: "Anyone scoped out Ebertfest? What do you think is ‘not to be missed’?
I admit I’m a neophyte when it comes to lieder, or German art songs.
But I just had to attend one of the two recitals of Franz Schubert lieder presented on Sunday by John Wustman and Nathan Gunn at the beautiful and grand Smith Recital Hall on the UI campus.
The Boneyard Arts Festival has so many cool events that I wish I had a few Doppelgangers to take them all in.
The festival opened Thursday evening and runs through this Sunday, featuring art displays and events at more than 100 venues.
