How did Richard Ford's cat influence his work as a novelist? How is Chuck Close's portraiture driven by his inability to remember faces?
Public Radio International's Julie Burstein, creator of the award-winning program Studio 360, offers a fascinating glimpse into some of the 21st century's greatest creative minds -- from Yo-Yo Ma and Robert Plant to Mira Nair and Chuck Close, to David Milch and Joyce Carol Oates, and beyond. Please join us to hear some of her many stories about the creative process of some of the world's most talented and prolific artists.
"These artists may not change lead into gold," Burstein writes," but they lift materials from their familiar contexts, combining, reshaping, transforming them into works of art that change the way we see the world."
Julie Burstein created Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen for PRI; she led the show's Peabody Award-winning creative team at WNYC for nine years.
