Arts and culture in Central Florida will take center stage in a new WUCF TV production beginning next week. The new series, “WUCF Artisodes,” premieres on Central Florida’s PBS station on Thursday, October 3, at 8 p.m., with new episodes following each week.
Please tune in and share this news with your friends and colleagues. In addition to featuring a local Central Florida artist or initiative, each episode also will include several arts stories from PBS stations across the country.
Part of their mission as your PBS station is to give everyone a front-row seat to the arts.
Thank you for your past support of the station, which is making "WUCF Artisodes" possible. They hope you’ll share your ideas for future stories with them.
Their premiere episode will feature Orlando storyboard artist Mark Simon, whose work ranges from feature films to national television shows to comic books and more.
Future stories will profile grassroots theater groups and a local 3D animation and projection mapping company. Later this year, they will feature the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park’s performance of Sir Michael Tippett’s A Child of Our Time as part of local efforts to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht.
You can watch a sneak peek of the new series here. After next week's premiere, full-length episodes and stories about local artists will be available on their website.
