In The Moment … February 2nd, 2021 Show 983 Hour 2

We get to know this year's Governor's Awards In The Arts honorees. First, Jim Speirs is with us for a look at the arts in South Dakota. Then we meet photographer and professor John Banasiak. Sculptor John Lopez joins us for a look at how landscape influences art and art influences culture. Plus, Ashley Ragsdale, with the Brookings Arts Council, joins us to talk about how the organization has navigated a tumultuous year and kept its mission flowing for the people they serve.
