As we read of this show at <a href="http://philbrook.org/explore/exhibitions/ronan-erwan-bouroullec-%E2%80%93-album">the Philbrook website</a>: "Design is a complex process in which numerous problems must be solved. Yet even in the age of computers, drawing remains an indispensable tool for many designers, allowing them to capture spontaneous ideas on paper and develop an individual formal language.

Today, as has been the case all along, the Philbrook Museum of Art is an important and truly unique aspect of the art scene not just in our community but throughout this part of the nation.

On this edition of our show, we speak by phone with the author and writing instructor B. A. Shapiro about her widely praised novel, "The Art Forger." In 1990, more than a dozen works of art (today worth, in sum, $500+ million) were stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. It remains the largest unsolved art heist in history, but in this equally fascinating and entertaining novel, our heroine --- Claire Roth, a struggling young artist --- learns more about this theft than she ever bargained for.

TU's Bell Lecture to Be Delivered by Dr. Clare Haynes of the University of Edinburgh http://kwgs.org/post/tus-bell-lecture-be-delivered-dr-clare-haynes-university-edinburgh <p>On this edition of our program, we offer a fascinating discussion concerning art, religion, and history with Dr. Clare Haynes of the University of Edinburgh.

On this installment of ST, we revisit this terrific show --- the first museum survey of Weber's work in two decades, and an exhibition which originated at Philbrook --- in order to explore one aspect of Weber's long and influential career in American modern art. Namely, that aspect is his relationship with Mark Rothko, the pioneering abstract painter who, while still a young man, was briefly a student of Weber's in the middle 1920s.

From large-scale environmental installations to album covers for Deep Purple and Jethro Tull to miniature "houseplants" (in which homes and buildings replace flowers and buds in intricately constructed bouquets), Grashow creates works that somehow thrive on both whimsy and decay, both wonder and mortality.
