It was a lively conversation that took a shot at a lot of big questions facing the arts scene, and looked both inward at the community's own motivations and outward at where Fort Wayne fits in the national and global arts scene.
Our nation's history has been written many times, in many ways.
But it's also been stuck -- quite literally -- to our letters and packages. That's the perspective shared by British author Chris West in his new book, A History of America in Thirty-Six Postage Stamps.
West is visiting Fort Wayne at the invitation of the Anthony Wayne Stamp Society, and WBOI's Julia Meek brought him to the Madge Rothschild Studios to talk about the beauty -- and history -- of the postage stamp.
If you've been busy carving pumpkins and crafting costumes this week, you're in good company. Halloween is one of the oldest holidays in the world, and one of America's favorites.
Curious to learn why we do what we do at this time of year, WBOI's Julia Meek was happy to learn that one local group, Sophia's Portico, celebrated the ancient roots of the holiday, originally known as Samhain.
This led Meek to invite Portico member, Sage Blackhart, into the Madge Rothschild Studios to discuss the history, lore and longevity of All Hallow's Eve
This Friday evening, Fort Wayne Cinema Center is presenting the first of a three-part silent film series with a one-time showing of Nosferatu, F.W. Murnau's classic 1922 adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula.
What makes these screenings special is that each boasts an original musical score composed and performed live by a local band, and Nosferatu will be hitting whole new heights of horror thanks to the efforts of the End Times Spasm Band.
