Broadstrokes: A Closer Look at the Arts


The School of Creative Arts at the University of Saint Francis is excited to announce the launch of its new television show, Broadstrokes: A Closer Look at the Arts. Thanks to a grant awarded to the university by the Cable Fund Access Board, the School of Creative Arts utilizes new, state-of-the-art studio equipment to give the community a behind-the-scenes look at the latest arts events happening on campus. Featuring Rick Cartwright, Dean of the School of Creative Arts, as host, Broadstrokes kicks off its first episode with Brad Beauchamp, a 27-year veteran of the local theater scene. Along with directing the university’s most recent musical, All Shook Up, Brad is well known to area audiences as both an award winning actor and director.

The show’s production is a collaborative effort by many areas of the School of Creative Arts. Students in media production shot and edited the project with supervision from the Communication faculty. The Music Technology faculty and students provided the music for the introduction and credit sequence, and the Computer Art program provided opening graphics.

The first episode airs on Cable Access Channel CATV 5, Thursdays—November 19—at 7:30 p.m. Episode 2 will air in December and feature interviews with artists exhibiting in the university’s National Ceramics and Printmaking Invitational that will open at the Weatherhead Gallery on December 5. Slated to appear in the January show will be Armin Mersmann, a nationally recognized artist known for his intense naturalistic graphite drawings that will be exhibited in the university’s Weatherhead Gallery in February 2010.
