Oregon Art Beat is OPB's Emmy Award-winning local arts series, now entering its 18th season. Art Beat profiles artists, musicians and artisans from around Oregon and the Northwest. Tune in Thursdays at 8 p.m. Coming soon! A brand new season of Oregon Art Beat premiers on October 6th. We travel the state to profile artists creating work that’s not nearly as traditional as it seems at first glance. From ceramics to metalsmithing to Russian icon painting, each artist brings their own modern, one-of–a-kind take to a familiar medium. All this and much more coming this fall! Until then, enjoy watching Oregon Art Beat’s tribute to jazz airing this week, highlighting just a few of the exceptional jazz artists in the state of Oregon. Catch up with composer and pianist Darrell Grant as he performs his latest work. Meet renown trumpeter, Farnell Newton, who can teach us a thing or two about music and social media. See how Pink Martini embraces performer Storm Large, and watch Thara Memory’s jazz orchestra take on the competition of a lifetime!
We sometimes call ourselves the radio show that listens. Or the show that's talking about what the Northwest is talking about. Or maybe: the radio show with a Northwest heart, a global head and internet fingers. The fuller answer is that we're a daily show about politics and global issues, music and sports, books and the environment — anything and everything that can sustain an hour of live, unscripted conversation. And, crucially, we're a web site that feeds into — and off of — that radio conversation.
