On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek visits Illinois Humanities’ new ENVISIONING JUSTICE exhibition. The multi-media exhibit aims to raise questions about justice looks like in Chicago. Later in the program, Gary sits down with the general manager of the Music Box as the historic theater prepares to celebrates its 90th anniversary. The Lakeview neighborhood theater first opened its doors on August 22 1929. The Dueling Critics, Kerry Reid and Jonathan Abarbanel, will stop by to talk about Black Ensemble’s world premiere musical YOU CAN’T FAKE THE FUNK. And Gary talks to a local author who wrote a novel inspired by a terrifying experience with an earthquake. All that, plus the weekly Arts Section calendar.
