The Arts Section 06/17/18: Basquiat and Beer

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek talks to filmmaker Sara Driver about her new documentary BOOM FOR REAL: THE LATE TEENAGE YEARS OF JEAN-MICHELE BASQUIAT.  The film looks back at the iconic artist's formative years and the community that nurtured his creativity.  BOOM FOR REAL is coming to Chicago for a run at the Siskel Center.  The Dueling Critics, Kelly Kleiman and Jonathan Abarbanel, stop by to review Goodman Theatre's Chicago premiere of FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS.  Hear all about Make Music Day, which is coming up on June 21. And Gary sits down with Chicago Tribune beer writer Josh Noel, author of the new book BARREL AGED STOUT AND SELLING OUT. The book offers a comprehensive look at Anheuser-Busch's acquisition of Goose Island and the ripple effects it had on the beer industry. Plus, the weekly Arts Section calendar.
