Jamie O'Reilly's Songpainting project inspires theme

Songpainting Women: Music + Art
Artists inspire songs. Songs illustrate art.

Aired Saturday October 23 & 31, 2010
WFMT Fine Arts Radio 98.7 FM

The feminist muse is the focus of Songpainting Women: Music + Art in this latest offering from The Feminist Lens.

Vocalist, cultural artist and Women’s Media Producer Jamie O’Reilly’s 20-year journey steering the Songpainting project on stage and in recordings, provides the springboard for the show. Host Marilyn Campbell looks at the work of musicians Laurie Anderson, Mercedes Sosa, and Joni Mitchell, and Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi, bringing O’Reilly and Chicago area artists – painter Gabriella Boros, singer-songwriter Linda M. Smith, and Argentine poet and collage artist Beatriz Badikian – into the conversation. WMG Exec. Prod. Maya Friedler provides final commentary.
