Title: Arts and Culture Show Goes from Mozart to a Musician-Surgeon

The new edition of smARTS, the Baltimore County arts and culture television show, meets the music director of Baltimore Choral Arts, an artist who uses corrugated paper to make a statement, a North Carolina native writing uplifting music for hard times, and an art historian looking to the future of contemporary art. The program airs on Baltimore County cable channel 25. Featured segments include:

  • Host Carolyn Black-Sotir speaks with Anthony Blake Clark, music director of Baltimore Choral Arts, about how growing up in rural west Texas impacted his love of Mozart.
  • North Carolina native Richard Hinton, a successful orthopedic surgeon in Baltimore, is also writing and performing music that speaks to our need to connect with community.
  • The Common Man Project performs original music.
  • UMBC art historian Kathy O’Dell gives her take on the direction of contemporary art.
  • Artemis Herber discusses why corrugated paper is her visual metaphor for taking an everyday product and transforming it into art that makes a statement about man and nature.

smARTS airs Thursdays and Fridays, 7:00-7:30 p.m. and Tuesdays 11:30 a.m. - noon on Baltimore County cable channel 25. SmARTS segments can be viewed on the Baltimore County Government YouTube channel.
