Jan. 12, 2023: Art Salvage, Chief Garry, Temptations
This week's TA(P) looks at a Broadway musical and righting the historical record
This week's episode of the Thursday Arts (P)review — where the "p" is parenthetical because we look both forward and back — includes the following:
- A studio interview with Dr. David Beine. His book Whodunnit? The Continuing Case of Chief Spokane Garry aims to set the local historical record straight. Beine will give a lecture on Thursday, Jan. 19 titled "What really happened to Chief Spokane Garry?" at the Liberty Park Library on behalf of the Spokane Preservation Associates.
- A phone interview with Harrell Holmes, Jr., who plays Melvin Franklin in the Broadway jukebox musical Ain't Too Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations. The nationally touring production comes to the First Interstate Center for the Arts from Jan. 17 to 22 as part of the Best of Broadway series.
- A studio interview with Katie Patterson-Larson of Art Salvage. Her "creative reuse" organization recently won a Spokane Arts Grant Award as part of SAGA's round-three 2022 funding cycle. She talks about how Art Salvage will use the grant.
Curious about the intro music? It's "A Small Plot of Land" by David Bowie.
The Thursday Arts (P)review airs every Thursday at 12pm on KPBX with a roundup of arts-related news and information from across the Inland Northwest.
