PODCAST: Bauhaus turns 100, surviving in the art world and Tim’s dumb idea

On Episode #5 of “CAN YOU HEAR ME, LONG BEACH?” The Bauhaus, one of the most influential schools of art, design and architecture, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year with retrospectives taking place at the Getty Research Center and the Los Angeles Museum of Art. The Post’s Asia Morris and Steve spoke with Tom Tredway, Cal State Long Beach design historian, and Cal State Los Angeles professor and Long Beach artist Carol Francis Lung about the school’s influence on how art is taught as well as its effect on local architecture and what you find on the shelves at Target.

Virginia Broersma is a local artist whose Artist’s Office helps her colleagues find out about opportunities and commiserates with the everyday challenges of being an artist. Asia and Steve spoke with Virginia about her new “Survival of the Artist” column for the Post.

Finally, Steve and Asia speak with Post columnist Tim Grobaty about a really dumb idea he had to find Long Beach’s Seven Wonders which, for some inexplicable reason, has become quite popular. Dumb.
