Episode: Live Culture with Martha Willette Lewis & Maxim Schmidt

This month's episode features guest co-host and artist Maxim Schmidt as we celebrate Women's History Month with a discussion with artists George Corsillo, Clymenza Hawkins and Amy Wachtel about their involvement with the art exhibit Sound & Vision II: For the Record... a visual and musical celebration of feminism involving over 40 artists in a gallery exhibit featuring imaginary record covers, real covers form private collections and the wpkn archive and musical memorabilia from women musicians at many stages of thier careers.

George Corsillo has created the art for numerous real album covers- here he tells about making the cover for Dolly Parton's 9 to 5, and Clymenza Hawkins was responsible for the booklet collages for Erykah Badu's double platinum Live Album, which featured her distinctive butterfly women imagery. Also included in the exhibit is an embroidered cover for Keb Mo's Oklahoma, by Michelle Beaulieu Morgan- a Live Culture interview with her about that story is available as a podcast here on the Live Culture Podcast Play List (number 22 on the playlist, episode 52).

also available is an interview with Sunflower Bean bandmember and activist Julia Cumming, also conducted by Lewis & Schmidt as a part of the Flux Capacitor WHM special on Thursday- listen here at the 11:00 am mark on the archives- (this will later be edited to a podcast)

The show is up until May 6th at the Institute Library 847 Chapel St. new Haven.
